  • Taylor Swift sparks voter registration spike nationwide

In the 24 hours since the "Shake It Off" singer's Instragram posting on Sunday, Vote.org said it saw 65,000 new voter registrations nationwide, the group's director of communications Kamari Guthrie told BuzzFeed News on Monday evening.

In her post, Swift said she was voting for Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and she spoke about what "terrifies" her about Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn, but the only actual endorsement she made was for the act of educating one's self and voting. Guthrie said the site had also seen a big uptick in the number of visitors since Swift's post, with 155,940 unique visitors in the 24 hours following.

Among the new registrations since Sunday, more than half were by those ages 18 to 29. The site's average amount of daily users is 14,078.

"As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", Swift wrote.

"These are not MY Tennessee values", the "Fearless" singer said online.

In her lengthy Instagram post over the weekend, Swift bashed Blackburn, writing, "As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn".

In the post, she states that though she previously voted for women in office, she does not feel able to support the Republican Senate candidate, Marsha Blackburn.

Mr Trump is also reported to have a close relationship with host Sean Hannity, a leading cable news cheerleader of the president. She went on to work on Trump's transition team before officially joining the White House communications team in January 2017.

Swift didn't mention specifically what event in her life led to the decision, however the pop star won a sexual assault lawsuit in 2017.

"For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100 percent on every issue, but we have to vote anyway", Swift wrote.

Blackburn's campaign didn't comment on Swift's post, but President Trump did.

Swift, 28, has notably stayed out of the US political fray in contrast to her more vocal peers, like Democratic supporters Katy Perry and Beyoncé, and Republican backer Kid Rock. "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now". But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. "Last day to register to vote is October 9".

"I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country", Swift said.

Of the roughly 240,000 people who have registered on Vote.org for the upcoming midterm elections on November 6, almost half, or about 102,000, are between the ages of 18 and 29, the website found.
