Taylor Swift queues up to vote as she joins other stars casting their ballots on election day

Being a superstar doesn’t let you jump to the front of the queue on election day.

Taylor Swift rocked up to her polling station to cast her ballot and had to wait in line before she could perform her civic duty and urge others to do the same.

Amy Schumer also had to wait in a queue, captioning this shot: “Good times and long lines! Don’t be discouraged by the wait. The lines move faster than you think.”

Jennifer Hudson shared a moving throwback photo of her with her late mother and the caption: “The last thing my mother did was go vote for Obama ! So it’s odd that I would run across this picture on Election Day , the day after her birthday n she’s wearing a shirt saying “vote your choice ” IM WITH HER … well mommy I already did , Pls vote today guys !!!”

Neil Patrick Harris quoted Martin Luther King in his caption to this shot, writing: “”Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

Cameron Diaz captioned this picture: “I voted today for the country I want to live in… a country where there is equality, inclusion, acceptance and freedom that EVERY American deserves… Please go out and vote for the America you want to live in..

Sarah Jessica Parker felt excited to take part in the election, writing: “Good L_rd it feels good.”

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
