"Who said voting's not fun?," the 'Law and Order' actress could be overhead saying in videos posted online as she tossed Milk Bar cookies to voters in line.

As voters take to the polls on Election Day, Mariska Hargitay is taking cues from Paul Rudd and decided to also hand out cookies to voters waiting in line in New York.

The Law and Order actress was shown in videos posted online tossing Milk Bar cookies to voters standing in line, awaiting to vote outside of Madison Square Garden.

"Who said voting's not fun?" the actress could be overhead saying as she threw cookies to voters. "Thank you for voting." She also jokingly dubbed herself as "the cookie queen."

Hargitay took to Instagram early Tuesday as she told fans that she will have the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on her mind for Election Day. She also expressed her hope for "enduring change" and offered words of encouragement to those feeling anxious over the anticipated results.

"As will so many of you, and the millions of vulnerable and disenfranchised people in America who are counting on those steps towards that real, enduring change," she wrote alongside a photo herself wearing a mask and holding a Ginsburg doll. "I am holding space for all of you feeling frightened and anxious tonight..Truly and deeply, I believe in our collective power to win this fight for the soul of our nation."

She also urged voters to "stay in line" and to take care of themselves.

Last week, Rudd handed out cookies to New Yorkers waiting in the rain to vote. "I want to say thank you for coming out and doing your part and voting," Rudd can be heard saying in videos posted online.

As the country awaits to hear whether President Donald Trump will be re-elected or Joe Biden will secure the win, many stars have expressed their anxious feelings on social media including Elizabeth Banks, Kerry Washington, Common and more.
