"Stay in Line": Hollywood Activists Take to Twitter to Reassure In-Person Voters With Election So Close

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gabrielle Union, Jurnee Smollett, Billy Eichner, Josh Gad and Common were among those urging voters to remain at the polls on Tuesday, particularly in key states like Florida and Wisconsin.

As polls closed on across the country on Tuesday night, Hollywood stars made one last push for in-person voters.

Stars including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gabrielle Union, John Legend, Kim Kardashian West, Billy Eichner, Kumail Nanjiani and Padma Lakshmi took to social media on Tuesday evening to encourage those in line to vote to stay in line, as early numbers and projections started to trickle in. Though poll closing times and rules vary by state, many close at 8 p.m. local time, and voters in several states are still allowed to cast their ballots as long as they are in line at closing time. The final call comes as the race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump gets increasingly close as election results start to come in.

Swing states Florida and Wisconsin were of particularly emphasis from the Hollywood crowd, with Union and Josh Gad sending messages to Florida voters and Kerry Washington and Jurnee Smollett cheering on those in line in Wisconsin. Eichner also shouted out South Carolina, Nanjiani tweeted North Carolina and Ashley Judd supported Arizona voters she had spoken to via phonebanking. Debra Messing also posted a video urging voters to "stay in line, stay strong and stay calm."

As it neared 7 p.m. in Arizona, Seth Rogen, Sarah Paulson, Tracee Ellis Ross, America Ferrera and Jimmy Kimmel rallied around voters in the swing state, particularly in Maricopa County, which could decide if Arizona goes blue or red.

The "stay in line" message was also echoed on both sides of the political aisle as Biden, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg and Donald Trump Jr. tweeted similar sentiments. The push for final votes follows the increasing likelihood that a winner will not be declared on election night, amid historic numbers of mail-in ballots and varying state laws about when votes will be counted.

With East Coast and most Midwest polls closed, the race between Biden and Trump remains close, with Biden having early projected wins through much of the Northeast — with New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland and Delaware — along with Virginia, Illinois, Colorado and New Mexico and the West Coast of California, Oregon and Washington. Meanwhile Trump secured projected wins throughout the South and Midwest, with including Indiana, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri. Trump was also later announced to secure a Texas win.

Trump claimed the battlegrounds of Ohio and Iowa while Biden won Minnesota and New Hampshire. Trump also won Florida, the nation’s most prized battleground election state. The Associated Press reports that races continued to be too early to call in some of other critical states on the map, including North Carolina, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

The Senate race has been similarly close, with each party flipping an opponent's seat and currently locked at 44 Democrats to 44 Republicans.

An unprecedented 103.2 million people cast their ballots early in this year’s presidential election, according to the Associated Press.
