Jennifer Aniston leads the stars in encouraging fans to vote early ahead of the US election

US HEADLINES:

Jennifer Aniston has led the stars with Zendaya and Sofia Richie in encouraging fans to vote early ahead of the US election.

The 2020 US presidential election is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, where either current President and Republican, Donald Trump, or Democrat, Joe Biden, will be voted into the White House. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic limiting the number of people who can be in a room, and within six feet of each other, most states are broadly adopted voting by mail to allow people to participate in the election.

It has been reported that more than 50 million people have already cast their ballots with 2020 said to be on track as one of the highest voter turnouts in over a century.

Taking to Instagram on Friday, Friends star Jennifer Aniston, 51, urged her 35.7 million followers to vote early as she issued an impassioned plea to Americans while sharing photos of herself dropping off her mail-in ballot.

Revealing she had voted for Biden, 77, the star, who wore an ‘I voted’ sticker, penned: ‘#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early.’

Explaining her reasons for voting, Jennifer continued: ‘I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue.

According to The Detroit News, she said in her speech: ‘I don’t have to tell you guys that this is the most important election of our lifetime. 

‘Michigan is going to be so crucial, and how Michigan votes is going to be so crucial between trying to make America great again or finally bringing America together.’

She added: ‘They’re out there trying to make America great again, but we need to finally bring America together again. Because I don’t want to go back to the way it was.

‘And Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will help us finally bring America together. So thank you for going door to door, in the face of a pandemic, risking everything on the front lines trying to save our democracy.’

The star was met with an attack from the Trump campaign, following her appearances at Friday’s events.

Michigan Democrats will find out the Truth Hurts when Michiganders re-elect President Trump.’

He was referring to the lawsuit launched by brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen, who claimed they co-wrote her Grammy-winning song Truth Hurts, before the case was dismissed in August.

‘We are raising him to fight for less fortunate kids,’ the video read. ‘Americans take care of one another. Vote with your heart.’

Introducing the clip, Jimmy told audiences: ‘I want to bring us back to focus on something we can’t afford to forget, and that is health care.’

‘The vast majority of this country believes that health insurance should cover Americans with preexisting conditions. If they’re allowed to do that, millions of people are going to suffer.’

The Affordable Care Act – aka Obamacare – will come in front of the Supreme Court on November 10, just one week after the election.

Make your voice heard! Patinkin urged his fans, 'Gotta get Biden/Harris in the White House, blue up and down the ballot'

Make your voice heard! Patinkin urged his fans, ‘Gotta get Biden/Harris in the White House, blue up and down the ballot’ 

This also comes as the state of the court is in flux, with the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett expected to be rushed through the Senate in coming days.

During a debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden this week, the Democratic candidate said he plans to build on the successes of the ACA with his own ‘Bidencare’ that would feature a public option.

Trump accused his rival of advocating for ‘socialised medicine’ while claiming he has his own plans to ‘terminate Obamcare’ and ‘come up with a brand new, beautiful health care.’

Homeland star Mandy Patinkin helped get out the vote by twerking up a storm on his TikTok account.

The actor, 67, urged his followers to head to the polls and vote Democrat just before shaking his behind in the kitchen.

‘If it’s your first time voting, make sure you register correctly otherwise your vote won’t count. Gotta get Biden/Harris in the White House, blue up and down the ballot. Good luck to you, it makes a world of difference!’

Mandy specifically joined TikTok in order to get out the vote for presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris.

The actor and his wife Kathryn have been hilariously dancing for followers while urging their followers to vote for the Democratic party.
