Elizabeth Banks, Kerry Washington and More Celebrities Urge Voters to #StayInLine
Despite long lines, voters are encouraged to stay in line to make their votes count.
As Election Day comes to a close, celebrities and politicians alike are urging voters to stay in line as some polling places are reaching waiting times of four hours or more.
The encouragement started trending on Twitter on Tuesday with the hashtag #StayInLine, with celebrities including Elizabeth Banks, Scandal's Kerry Washington and Veep's very own commander-in-chief, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, sending the message out to voters.
As some of California's polling results are coming in, some of the major battleground states that could make or break it for either candidate remain in play, and for most states, anyone in line at the polling site's closing time can vote on Tuesday.
See some of the tweets below.
If you're in line to vote before the polls close, STAY IN LINE to vote! Never give up. Never surrender. Please RT. #StayInLine— Elizabeth Banks (@ElizabethBanks) November 9, 2016
Due to the polling place shutdown for OVER AN HOUR, the line to vote here is more than a block long. pic.twitter.com/RQ9RmtjLFi— Harrison Greenbaum (@harrisoncomedy) November 8, 2016
The crazy-long lines to vote in too-cool-to-care Silverlake make me so happy. #ElectionDay— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) November 8, 2016
