Taylor Swift’s political work has really impressed me ever since 2018. That was when she came out of the political closet, declared herself a Democrat who believes in LGBTQ rights and women’s rights, endorsed a Democrat for Tennessee’s Senate seat, and got her Snake Fam to register to vote. Throughout 2020, Taylor has been using social media to call out Donald Trump, slam white supremacy and advocate for Black Lives Matter. But what has she done for us lately?!? LOL, I’m joking! Taylor used her IG Stories on Tuesday to once again encourage her fans to register to vote (Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day) and she gave them some links and resources to get started:

I know people love IG Stories and all of that, but this could have been a stand-alone permanent Instagram post. I’m nitpicking, but still. I really and honestly hope Taylor does more work in the next six weeks to get people to vote. (Also: HER BANGS OMG.)
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner did an IG Live event with political operative Jon Favreau yesterday too. I love that all of these younger women are using their platforms this way. Y’all know that Kendall is far from my favorite person, but this is GREAT.
