Selena took to Instagram to proudly announce that she had just finished filling out her ballot. She also sported an “I VOTED” sticker on her shirt.

The star then joined the Voting Power Hour YouTube stream with Lord Luxury. Selena chatted with fans and shared details about her first voting experience when asked about it by a fan from Michigan.
“Honestly, I’m not ashamed to say this, but I kind of, I kind of—this was my first time,” Selena revealed. “And I’m going to say that because I’ve never felt—and this is so true—and I’m now like admitting it to people, like my vote counts. Like, every little thing counts, so I just think some people get in their head, and they’re like, ‘Oh well, what does it matter?’ And then once I really, really started going in and diving in to this, it’s been all I can focus on.”
She also ended the discussion by stressing the importance of voting for the younger generation. Selena reminded them to use their voice, saying how encouraging it was to watch everyone fight for their rights.
Selena Gomez’s Health Risk
Despite being eager to cast her vote this time around, Selena was also focused on following the SOPs amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She opted to mail in her California ballot instead of going to vote in person.
“I had to. I would prefer to do it in person,” Selena had said during the stream, “but, you know, I need to be safe.”
It is important for Selena to take care of her safety. Especially since she has been quite open about her health issues in the past, including her Lupus diagnosis and consequent kidney transplant in 2017.
