In honor of Reynolds’s birthday, on Tuesday (October 23), Lively posted a photo to her feed of her and Reynolds sending in their own ballots ahead of the November 6 midterm elections. “Happy Birthday to 2018’s Sexiest Voter Alive @vancityreynolds #justvoted 📬🎉#absenteeballot party!” she captioned the shot, which showed the lovebirds standing in front of a bunch of multicolored balloons. The A Simple Favor star also posted a photo to her Story of the two of them in their “birthday voting limelight,” and asked her followers whether they’d be voting absentee or in person this season.
Reynolds posted a similar shot to his own feed, writing, “What a birthday! I just smoked a huge bowl of early voting.”
Reynolds and Lively aren’t the only A-listers commemorating big milestones by getting out the vote. On Monday night, Amy Schumer directed her followers to journalist Jessica Yellin’s page, where she shared her voting recommendations alongside the news that she’s expecting her first child. And in recent weeks, Taylor Swift has become more politically active than ever on social media, first by sharing her support of Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper, and then by posting countless photos to her Story celebrating her fans who have opted to vote early. Considering Swift’s first post reportedly may have contributed to a 65,000-person increase in voter registration after just 24 hours, clearly, these types of posts really can make an impact.
