Celebrities rock the vote, urge you to do the same via Twitter

Merry Election Day! If your polling place is like mine, it took just eight minutes or so to participate in the democratic process this morning. If you live in Staten Island, New Jersey, Fairfax, Va., or any number of other places, voting might be a little more difficult. But no matter how long your wait or how bitter the cold, it’s important to cast a ballot – because if you don’t, you’ll be disappointing the dozens of celebrities who appeared in political PSAs this year. And do you really want to be responsible for making Selena Gomez and Jonah Hill cry?

Now that the day of reckoning has finally come, politically-minded celebs are out in full force urging normals to vote. They’re also putting their millions where their mouths are, voting themselves and then bragging about doing so on Twitter. (Unless, of course, they’re underage.) And then there are those who are treating the whole thing like a joke – just what we’d expect from Comedy Central’s best and brightest. Here are a few of our favorite Election Day tweets from boldfaced names:
