Today, Election Day, she took to her Instagram Story to post a series of videos underscoring her message.

She then tells her fans, “It’s not enough to just want change. It’s not enough to just want to vote. You have go and make change by voting and today is your opportunity to do that. I promise you it feels so wonderful to exercise that right that you have.”

Taylor then asked fans to take photos of themselves after casting their votes, tag her in the photos and add the hashtag #JustVoted.”

“I’ll be looking for you!” she concludes. “Happy voting, you guys!”
