Ariana Grande wields a power both great and terrible. On Thursday, October 11, the singer shared several states deadlines to vote on her Instagram story, alongside a direct link to the March For Our Lives website.
Within a half hour, the website had crashed due to a massive influx of Grande-fans registering to vote.

Grande sent out her call to action as part of MFOL’s Turnout Tuesdays, where, every Tuesday until the November midterms, the organization makes a concerted effort to encourage young people to vote.

ÛÏYou might not be a big fan of politics, but you can still participate. All you need to do is vote for people you believe will work on these issues.Û ÛÓ@Emma4Change #TurnoutTuesdayhttps://t.co/99LeBjWMMV

Grande isn’t the only star driving youth to the polls this week! A post supporting Tennessee Senate candidate Phil Bredesen and incumbent U.S. House member Rep. Jim Cooper from pop sensation Taylor Swift drew record registration rates among 18- to 29-year-olds over the course of two days.
