Yolanda Hadid is a first-time voter in the 2020 Election.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, 56, voted “for the first time today!!!,” reported her supermodel daughter Bella. “She became an American citizen just recently ... and this year she was so determined to get out and vote.”

Bella, 24, added that she was “so proud” of her mom, and they both wore “our best blues” for the occasion as supporters of Biden and Harris. The women also shared an embrace in their matching “I am a voter” masks.

In a video before they headed to the polls, Yolanda said, “My one vote might just make a difference,” in the swing state of Pennsylvania, where she owns a farm in New Hope. In turn, Bella replies, “It will make a difference.”

Yolanda, who was raised in the Netherlands, became a citizen in May 2013, she shared at the time. A camera crew for her then-Bravo series filmed her taking the oath for the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services, along with 4,000 others.

"As a little girl, it was always my dream to come to America,” she told E! News at the time. “I am living the American dream every day. I am so thankful. We worked very hard. We worked for everything we have in our life. We worked hard to get where we are today."

And Yolanda — who traveled the world as a model in her pre-reality-TV days — said she was looking forward to voting, telling the outlet, "I've never voted in my life. I left Holland right when I was 16 and I wasn't eligible to vote and when I came here I wasn't allowed to vote.” However, she apparently sat out the 2016 election.

It’s a year of firsts for the RHOBH. Yolanda also just became a first-time grandma too. Her older daughter, Gigi Hadid, 25, welcomed her first child, a daughter, with boyfriend Zayn Malik. The whole family has been quarantining at the Pennsylvania farm.
