Ok ladies, now let’s get in formation.
Whether you’ve been living under a rock, or have been willfully drowning out the cacophonous news cycle over the past 18 months, we have some news: today, November 8th, is election day in the United States. No matter the outcome, our country is poised to make history as the most contentious campaign season in history comes to a close.
With Hillary Clinton, the first major party female presidential nominee, on the ticket, men and women everywhere are understandably excited to cast their unprecedented votes. The ladies below are showing their patriotism at the polls — they’re #WithHer:
1. Amy Schumer
First lady of comedy Amy Schumer has made no secret of her support for Hillary Clinton — in fact, hundreds of people walked out of her recent show due to Schumer’s less than flattering characterizations of Donald Trump.
2. Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham has been faithfully campaigning for Hillary Clinton since primary season. It’s safe to say that she was excited to finally cast her vote for the first-ever female presidential nominee.
Love her or hate her (but seriously, who could hate her!?), Beyonce wields significant cultural influence over America — and beyond. After months of speculation from fans over whether Queen B would make an endorsement, she came out swinging this past weekend with a surprise performance at Hillary Clinton’s Cleveland rally, urging her fans to get to the polls.
4. Taylor Swift
Ok, so Taylor Swift hasn’t officially come out and endorsed either candidate. But for decency’s sake, let’s assume she’s #WithHer. Because if not, my entire adolescence spent singing along to Hey, Stephen was a lie.
5. Karlie Kloss
Hillary Clinton supporter, supermodel, coding expert, and social media maven Karlie Kloss proudly filled in her absentee ballot from a backstage dressing room. (Potentially dramatic factoid: Karlie is dating Josh Kushner, brother of Jared Kushner, husband to Ivanka Trump!)
6. Katy Perry
Hi, can someone please tell me where to order this custom Prabal Gurung “Madam President” cape? Thanks.
7. Hillary Clinton
It’s probably safe to assume that this one’s not for Gary Johnson.
8. Susan B. Anthony
Tragically, suffragist Susan B. Anthony died before winning the right to vote. In a rare and beautiful instance of human decency, a new tradition has sprung up around her famous grave site in Rochester, N.Y.: every four years, visitors cover her tombstone in “I Voted” stickers. The Mt. Hope Cemetery, which normally closes at 5:30p, will remain open until 9pm tonight.
On November 8, 1872, Susan B. Anthony was arrested for illegally casting a ballot in the presidential election. More than a century later, single women are the nation’s most potent political force. Rochester’s Mt. Hope Cemetery, where Anthony is buried, usually closes at 5:30 p.m., but today, it’ll be open until voting ends. 📸: Courtesy of Twitter/AdamBlickstein
L&T’s very own Content Associate Hilary Krutt hit the polls early in Brooklyn, NY, showing up to support her namesake (give or take an L), subtly worded commute reading in hand.
