If tie-dye was the official style of 2020 spring quarantine, then "vote" merchandise is 100 percent the fall mood in fashion — and that's no wonder since somehow Election Day is just around the corner. While the stakes of this pivotable election are incredibly high, it's estimated that only 55 percent of the voting-age population actually fulfilled their civic duty to cast their ballot in the 2016 Presidential Election, according to the United States Elections Project. That plus the fact that we're still amidst a global pandemic, hate seems to be running rampant, and there's record job loss across the country, exercising your constitutional right has never felt so important.

And while there are plenty of effective ways to spread the word and make a plan (i.e. phone calls, texts, conversations), there's something about simply wearing the message that can make one of the biggest statements. And we're seeing celebs from Hailey Bieber and Jessica Biel to Mindy Kaling and Gwyneth Paltrow going all-in on their "vote" swag. Kerry Washington, for example, has taken to Instagram, posting Stories and in-feed photos featuring a veritable wardrobe worth of "vote" tees and masks. Oprah has also recently been spotted in a "vote" sweater and tee. And need not forget about icon Michelle Obama, who's 14K gold "vote" necklace shone brightly during the Democratic National Convention this year.

If you want to get in on your favorite leading ladies' style, check out the latest "vote" merch — from clothes to jewelry and even face masks — then hit the polls IRL or through mail-in ballot on or before November 3.
