The day of the presidential election has finally arrived, and Hollywood stars are using their power to encourage America to head to the polls.

For months, the most politically active actors and filmmakers have been creating videos and hitting the campaign trail to help America determine who to vote for as the next president. Over the past couple months, Katy Perry sported President Obama-themed outfits while singing at rallies, Wilmer Valderrama and Eva Longoria encouraged the Latino vote and Will Ferrell offered to eat garbage if fans voted.

Ryan Seacrest had Obama on his radio show on Tuesday morning, and the president made one more push for Americans to get to the polls: “Regardless of who you’re voting for our democracy works when the American people get involved. The American people are decent, hard working, and they’ve got great instincts. The more people participate the better the outcome.”

Mariah Carey had her own personal photo shoot at the polls, adding on Twitter: “Let your vote be heard!! Four more years!”

Carey wasn’t the only famous face posting a photo on Twitter. Lenny Kravitz also posted a photo of himself with his “I Voted” sticker.

“Lets vote y'all. I'm up and been in line. And yes, good morning,” he tweeted.
