She informed her fans and followers that “over 50 percent of the United States is female, but only 20 percent of Congress is female.” In another story, she encouraged young people to vote by saying that “Millennials will make up the largest voting bloc for the first time” in the November elections.
Gigi also said that if “50 percent of voters vote this November, it would be the highest midterm turnout in a century,” and educated people by telling them that “all 435 House Seats and 35 Senate Seats are up for election,” and finished the message with “vote, vote, vote!!!”
With the midterm elections set to take place on November 6, many celebrities have used their social media platforms to urge fans to head to the polls and exercise their basic political right.
