Election Day: Stars Get Out the Vote on Twitter
As President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney tirelessly rallied support on the campaign trail in recent months, many high-profile Hollywood names — from George Clooney to Eva Longoria to Clint Eastwood — stumped for their candidate from coast-to-coast.
And now that decision day is here, they and many others in Tinseltown are taking to Twitter to get out the vote. From pushing Americans to make their voices matter to sharing sites for polling information, politically minded stars are encouraging voters to take part in the democratic process.
They’re not just talking the talk — stars are voting, too, and sharing their experiences and polling-booth snaps on Twitter.
