Selena Gomez has recently confirmed that she voted for the first time this year despite being eligible to vote in the last two presidential elections.
The singer took to her Instagram page to make the announcement by saying "I just finished filling out my ballot” while wearing a shirt with the phrase “I VOTED" inscribed on it.
Selena also spoke about her first voting experience on Voting Power Hour YouTube stream saying; “Honestly, I’m not ashamed to say this, but this was my first time voting and I'm going to say that because I've never felt like my vote counts. Like, every little thing counts, so I just think some people get in their head, and they're like, 'Oh well, what does it matter?' Once I really, really started going in and diving into this, it's been all I can focus on”.
The famous popstar also addressed the reason she had to mail her California ballot rather than vote in person: “I had to. I would prefer to do it in person, but you know I need to be safe”.
