Celebs Hit Voting Booths for Clinton and Sanders on CA Primary Day


Celebrity supporters of Democrat presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders took to social media on Tuesday to proudly declare that they had voted in the day’s primary — and urged others to do the same.

Six states held their presidential primary on Tuesday, including California, where Clinton and Sanders were locked in a statistical dead heat as polling locations opened in the morning.

Musicians and actors including Katy Perry, Eva Longoria and Elizabeth Banks tweeted their support for Clinton. Perry also included a photo urging Californians to vote for Senate candidate Kamala Harris:

As a true California girl, I know it's my civic duty AND privilege to go out and VOTE for the future of Cali AND the rest of 🇺🇸 this coming TUESDAY 6.7.16! Not only can you vote for our future PREZ but you can vote for a new SENATOR from California, too! I was incredibly impressed hearing @KamalaHarris speak about the plans she has for our future including women's right to choose, immigration, gun control and more. She is articulate, intelligent and empathetic…but doesn't skirt the tough stuff! My favorite quote of hers was, "Let's not just throw up our hands when we need to roll up our sleeves!" I agree. It's time to scrub up on these issues. I am so proud that people are using their voice more than ever, especially us sisters. We are all 💪🏼stronger 💪🏼when we stand together! See you at the polls on Tuesday, I'll be voting for @KamalaHarris, who's going to do great things in the Senate! (and @HillaryClinton obvi) #TeamKamala
