Stars of the music world have also spoken out in a bid to convince voters to turn out, with Cher writing in a post on Twitter, "God bless ppl (people) who stood in voting lines 4 (for) hours! You are heroes! For tomms (tomorrow's) voters please be strong!" and fellow pop star Perry posted a picture on her own page showing herself standing with Obama.

Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx also added his voice, writing, "I don't care who you vote for, just f**king do it. The power is in our hands. Vote... The right to vote is your country's gift to you. Voting is your gift to your country. Please vote. Vote."
