Earlier this month, Grammy winning singer and songwriter Taylor Swift took to Instagram to endorse Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee. While the post earned backlash from conservatives who once considered Swift an icon, voter registrations leapt in the immediate aftermath of her Instagram post.

Now Swift is back on Instagram to address voting for the 2018 midterms with her fans and followers. Specifically, Swift hopes to get the word out about early voting.

Voters do not need to wait until election day to vote, which Swift stated she wished she knew the first time she voted at age 18. On Instagram she said:

“Something I wish I knew about when I was 18 and voting for the first time: ✨EARLY VOTING✨. It makes it so quick and easy to go and cast your vote before November 6. Early voting starts TODAY in Tennessee and goes to Nov 1 🇺🇸”

Swift then directs her followers to her bio page where they can check on early voting in their own state through Vote.org where people can also check on the status of their voter registration.

The post earned over 860,000 likes after just 7 hours. People on Twitter noticed her latest efforts to get out the vote as well.

For the most part, feedback ran positive. Except when Fox News shared the story. Although the pushback against Swift got some pushback of its own.

However outside of the Fox News post, people seemed to appreciate the message and the links to encourage voting, especially by millennials.
