Celebrities who voted in the presidential election

While many came out in support of a particular candidate (America Ferrera, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham are with Hillary Clinton, to name a few), others — like Lionel Richie — just hoped to encourage fans to be heard.

See who made it out to the polls or sent in their ballots early.
