Hollywood 'Rocked the Vote'

Hollywood 'Rocked the Vote'

It is election day in America, as many voters across the country head to the polls to decide which party will control the U.S. Senate. 

The midterms are often looked upon as a referendum on the party of the sitting president, and in 2014, many have projected the Republicans will come out ahead. 

Regardless, several of Hollywood’s A-Listers turned out to vote. 

Rapper Kanye West stressed the importance of the midterm elections, in which he reportedly voted Democrat, and he promoted his relationship with President Obama.

Me and my wife met with President Obama two weeks ago
