On the first day of early voting, Taylor Swift posted on Instagram that she voted in Nashville’s Metro election.
“Early voting for our city officials and some statewide seats began today,” she wrote Friday on her Instagram story, posing with an “I Voted” sticker. “We have the opportunity to choose those who will represent us for the next four years.”
She continued, encouraging people to make their voices heard and attaching a Vote.org link with information about early voting, which began July 14 and runs through July 29 before election day on Aug. 3. It’s unclear whether she voted in person or absentee since she has a show in Denver, Colorado, Friday night.
The ballot has 106 candidates running for local offices including mayor, vice mayor and Metro Council. A couple special state House elections are on the ballot, as well.
Here’s The Tennessean’s guide to early voting.
Swift has called Nashville home since she was in her early teens and has advocated for political involvement in the past. In 2018, she posted on Instagram endorsing two Tennesseans running for Congress, including Phil Bredesen for U.S. Senate, citing disapproval for then-Rep. Marsha Blackburn and her policies. Blackburn went on to win that race.
“In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” she wrote in 2018.
In the 24 hours following her post, The Tennessean reported, more than 65,000 people registered to vote.
