Ooh, look what she made you do.

According to Vote.org, it was the strong statement from Taylor Swift and her urging you to vote that finally got you registered. The site claims they had more than 65,000 people sign up to vote in the 24 hours following her Instagram post, and potentially 400,000 people who have signed up since. According to Vote.org Director of Communications Kamari Guthrie, it is the site's second biggest day of the year, behind National Voter Registration Day in September.

"In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions" said Swift in the post. "But due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now." The singer then stated her support for a candidate running in her home state of Tennessee. The site also specifically saw a spike in new voters there as well.
