With so many Americans hitting the polls today, it’s no surprise that celebrities are also making their voices heard in the 2012 election. Regardless of who they’re voting for, it’s clear that the overall message these A-listers want everyone to take away is “I voted and I’m proud!” And they hope their fans go out and do the same.

All this election action is making Lady Gaga very proud — and sleepy. “So great to see everyone so involved today, going to say some political prayers and take a nap. #GodBlessAmerica,” she tweeted.
Some celebrities tried to spread the message to vote by encouraging fans to rock their finest couture when they hit the polls. Mindy Kaling tweeted, “What did you wear when you voted? Electoral sartorial!”
Katy Perry had a similar message for her fans, writing, “Who’s ready to vote tomorrow? I’ve got my outfit laid out! Send me a photo of your outfit when you’re at the polls, and I’ll RT my faves!”
