Who knew that an Instagram post from Taylor Swift would turn the world of politics on its head like this? Because of her IG post supporting Democrats, voter registration in her home state of Tennessee has spiked dramatically!
"We are up to 65,000 registrations in a single 24-hour period since T. Swift's post," said Kamari Guthrie of vote.org. This spike is second only to the number of people who visited the site to register on National Voter Registration Day back on September 25. Since Swift's post supporting two Tennessee Democrats, she's caught the criticism of Mike Huckabee and the President himself. To which Guthrie says, "Thank God for Taylor Swift."

She used her voice again on the AMA's last night. She was a big winner at last night's AMAs picking up four honors that included Artist of the Year. While accepting the award for Artist of the Year, she used her platform to speak about voting again, "This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people, and you know what else is voted on by the people, the midterm elections on November 6."
