Wearing a mask, sunglasses and sweatpants, Jennifer Aniston dropped her ballot inside an official ballot drop box location on San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood. She posted a photo of the civic action for her 35.7 million Instagram followers with a message endorsing the Democratic ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and explaining her decision.

"I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early," Aniston writes, before taking aim at President Trump's divisive rhetoric and how he's responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. "I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current president has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science … too many people have died."

Aniston continued: “I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now … your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting)."

She then went on to say that it is not about "one candidate or one single issue," but rather the future of the country and the world. "Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency," she wrote, closing by making it clear that she does not support Kanye West's bid for the presidency as the rapper appears on the California ballot. "PS — It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

The pandemic post is the latest from Aniston as she has ramped up her civic suggestions as of late. In June, she encouraged people to wear masks to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and in March, she posted an early get-out-the-vote message. "I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down … jobs are being lost … health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion," she posted. "And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough."

#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died. ⠀ I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now... your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀ ⠀ This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀ ❤️⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PS - It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible
