Just like that, it's time to hit the polls again.
The return of an election season always brings forth a tried and true trio of events that prelude that Tuesday in November: nationwide anxiety, a never-ending news cycle, and a wave of familiar "I Voted!" selfies. Because did you even really vote if you didn't post about it on Instagram?
Due to this year's high-stakes election and the concerns around in-person voting amid the coronavirus pandemic, celebrities and high-profile figures have been more vocal than ever about the importance of being ready and registered to vote—and voting early if you can.
Though we, too, love to indulge in a post-voting booth snap or mailbox drop-off selfie, remember that the rules on capturing and posting photos of your ballot differs from state to state. In some places, posting ballot selfies is illegal. (This handy roundup here lists where each state lands on the policy.) In California, it's perfectly legal to photograph yourself performing your civic duty, hence the series of celebrity images—ranging from Zendaya to Zoë Kravitz to Tracee Ellis Ross and more—that we've rounded up below.
Want to know the deadlines for registering to vote and mailing ballots for your state? Check out our guide here.

so. a lot of you have been asking me about my skin care routine: i start by voting as early as possible for #joebiden and #kamalaharris and all the other democratic candidates. then try some eye cream if you haven't been sleeping well because the president is a racist.

#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early 👏🏼 I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died. ⠀ I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now... your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀ ⠀ This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀ ❤️🗳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PS - It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼

I did it! Did you? Feels good to exercise my right to VOTE. I like to think that ray of light coming through the trees 🌅is ALL of the women who came before me who did not have this fundamental right. ✨🗳 Ok ... 18 days until the election!

WE Voted!! This is a year of wokeness and understanding that we have to be the change we want to see. "We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody,I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land". ~MLK The vision and potential of this country cannot happen with complacency and/or apathy.💛 Vote! Like your very breath depends on it 💛💛🙏🏿🙏🏿VOTE! VOTE!!
