See the celebs who voted at the US Election


The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle went the extra mile and cold-called voters while Katy Perry voted early by mail.

The 2020 US Election is on track to record the highest voter turnout in a century, with a projected 66.1% of the eligible population casting their votes, according to The Washington Post.

Celebrities have been rallying Americans to vote for months and it's no surprise that when election day arrived on Nov 3, they walked the talk.

Stars like Paul Rudd even gave out cookies to appreciate those who voted.

Here's a list of celebs who exercised their civic duty as well as those who went the extra mile:

Meghan Markle

Numerous news sites have reported that Markle has made history by becoming the first member of the British royal family to cast her vote for president in an American election. It is a significant move on her part as the royals have always refrained from taking part in public elections.

Besides voting, the former Suits actress and Duchess of Sussex has been vocal about the importance of voting, even appearing in a public service announcement video with her husband Prince Harry to encourage people to vote back in September.

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem revealed she and Markle even sat down together and cold-called voters ahead of election day.

Paul Rudd

Rudd may be known in recent years for playing the minute superhero who packs a punch, Ant-man. But in real life, the 51-year-old has a giant heart. Rudd gave out blueberry and cream cookies on Oct 29 to thank early voters at Brooklyn, New York City, for waiting in line to vote, despite the rain.

Mariska Hargitay

Days before Rudd went viral for handing out cookies, the Law & Order: SVU star took to the streets of New York and thanked early voters with cookies on Oct 27.

Offset

After casting his votes on election day, rapper Offset, one-third of the hip hop trio Migos, went to three polling stations in Atlanta, Georgia to hand out cheesesteaks and vegan burgers to voters standing in line. Offset, who partnered with two popular Atlantan food trucks, even helped cook some of the meals himself.
