The 19-year-old actress was a primetime speaker on Clinton's historic night.

Chloe Grace Moretz continued the celebrity brigade at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Thursday night.

"I am so excited to be able to say that my first vote for president will be for Hillary Clinton," said the 19-year-old actress.

The Neighbors 2 star encouraged others, especially speaking to her generation, to vote, saying how it "took just a minute" for her to register.

Voting gave the millennial "the power of a lifetime," said Moretz. "Imagine what can happen if we all make our voices heard this November at the ballot box?"

Saying "we can elect a president" who will fight for all Americans to graduate from college debt-free, and who will fight for equal pay and equal work, she preached, "Get registered right away," and directed those watching to visit iwillvote.com.

The actress's primetime slot is likely to attract millennials, as she has 9 million fans on Instagram and 2 million on Twitter. 

Earlier in the day, Moretz shared a photo on Instagram of herself with boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham, 17-year-old son to David and Victoria Beckham, from inside the Wells Fargo Center, the site of the DNC.

The actress also has been chronicling her excitement over being a part of the DNC on Twitter leading up to Thursday. Moretz shared a conversation with her brother where she expressed being in awe while attending the inspiring event this week. 

For the first time in U.S. history, a woman will accept the presidential nomination for a major party when Clinton takes the stage tonight.

Chelsea Clinton will introduce a 12-minute video chronicling Hillary's life, which was created by Shonda Rhimes and will be narrated by Morgan Freeman, and paint a personal picture of her mother before the Democratic nominee appears to officially accept the nomination. Clinton plans to involve the crowd in a card stunt and is expected to both discuss her journey to this moment and share her vision for the future in her speech.

According to excerpts released ahead of time, Clinton will offer "steady leadership" to a country "looking for reassurance" amid turmoil in the world.

"America is once again at a moment of reckoning," she will say, according to the preview.  Americans must "decide whether we're going to work together so we can all rise together."

The final night of the four-day DNC convention continues to see a slew of A-list support. Katy Perry will perform her new hit, "Rise," in keeping with the DNC theme, before Chelsea Clinton takes the stage.

Earlier, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took a jab at Donald Trump; Ted Danson and wife Mary Steenburgen spoke about their longtime pal; Carole King performed "You've Got a Friend"; and at a DNC-related event in Camden, N.J., Lady Gaga and Lenny Kravitz performed for an invite-only crowd of delegates.

The convention also has had no shortage of political star power, with President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, former President, Bill Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden delivering passionate endorsements for Hillary.
