Benefits of Sharing Your Vote Photo: Celeb Shout Outs & Freebies

Nov 06, 2012 at 2pm

Bay Area voters are getting a little more than the opportunity to choose the next president today. Tweeters and Instagrammers are connecting with celebs through vote hashtags and shout outs. If that wasn't cool enough, Bay Area businesses are granting voters some freebies when sharing vote photos on the web.

Update! Inspired by all the girls giving me shade I've added sunglasses and a patriotic peacoat #dress2vote #obama2012

Lena Dunham of the HBO series Girls has been known for her political activism on social networks. She began this Instagram hashtag, #dress2vote, and fashionably-inclined voters were sure to participate.

Today was my first time voting in person. Obviously it was a TOTAL BLAST. Today also marks the day I launch my campaign to take back the color red from the Republican Party. #gobama #dress2vote cc @lenadunham
