The 2012 Election Season is coming to a close, with your vote being the grand finale. All across the country people are exercising their right to vote and make sure their voices, as well as their beliefs, are heard and recognized. No matter where your vote goes, we think it’s important to be an active participant in society — and so do celebrities! All over the Celeb World today, celebrities were snapped casting their votes — some had smiles on their faces, eager to cast their choice, others appeared a bit ho hum about the task. But, hey, they voted nonetheless. That’s the important part, right?
We’re a far cry away from being a political blog (this is about as political as you’ll see us get), but we thought it would be fun to show you just a handful of celebs who are making a difference today. By no means could we snatch up all the celebrities who were snapped voting, but we have a few for you below, so be sure to check them out and let us know what you think!
Ashley Tisdale decided to make her voting day a mother-daughter affair, as did Hilary Duff and her mother. Many celeb couples went out for the vote, including Ellen Pompeo (Grey’s Anatomy) and husband Chris Ivery. Both showed their support, and they were seen leaving the ballot drop off center with huge smiles on their faces.
While this is a big day, work never stops for celebrities. Like you, celebs are busy, busy people, so many of them are going to vote whenever their schedule allows. Josh Duhamel, as well as many others, dropped his ballot off before work. Other celebrities who were snapped voting (in our gallery below) include January Jones, LeVar Burton, Ryan Seacrest, Beyonce, Lenny Kravitz, and Mariah Carey.
Here’s what a few of your faves had to say via Twitter about the 2012 Election:
Ryan Seacrest: “Ballot filled out, just gotta drop it off after work. #ivoted #almost”
Ian Somerhalder: “VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE.Be patient pls,its worth it.Workers at polling places move like molasses on a cold day (very slowly) unfortunately”
Khloe Kardashian: “Today is Election Day!!! Get out there and vote people! Election info at http://rockthevote.com/election-center/ … #GoVote “

Ellen Degeneres: “If you want to see change… vote. If you want equal rights… vote. If you want good deals on holiday sweaters, go to jcp. Then vote.”
And poor Justin Bieber tweets: “im 18…but i cant vote…im Canadian.”
