Chrishell Stause wants her fans to vote — in more ways than one.

On Friday, the actress posted a bikini photo to Instagram with the hopes of inspiring her followers. “True that thirst traps help encourage voting? Worth a shot!” she wrote.

Go to to find your polling center (Too late to mail in! It needs to go in an official ballot box.”

Fans appreciated the message and photo choice. “Great use of a thirst trap,” one said, adding, “got my vote.” Someone else wrote, “Best DWTS contestant ever. I’ve loved voting you up all season long!” Another commented: “Damn. I’ll go vote right now I promise.”
