Dubya casts his ballot, and celebrities rock the vote
The image of Donald Trump peering at his wife, Melania, as she cast her ballot on Tuesday was a social media favourite, but he likely wasn’t the only one who may have wondered how people were voting. So how did other notable Americans choose to cast their ballots?
George W. Bush did not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, a spokesperson for No. 43 said. The most recent Republican president voted “none of the above for presi- dent and Republican down-ballot,” Freddy Ford said. That means Bush voted for Republicans in congressional and local races.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush was a favourite to win the GOP nomination until Trump branded him with a name that stuck: Low energy.
Celebrities haven’t been shy about speaking out for their preferred candidates (Clinton: Jay-Z and Beyoncé; Trump: Scott Baio and Stephen Baldwin) and on Tuesday, many took to social media to trumpet their choice or urge followers to vote.
Taylor Swift posted a picture of herself in a queue of voters, and a reminder that “today is the day.” (It received more than 1.5 million likes.)
Longtime Democrat and billionaire Warren Buffett declined to say how he cast his ballot, but he was out and about in his home state of Nebraska, helping drive voters to the polls.
A video on Fortune.com showed Buffett in the polling booth — and then smiling as he received his “I Voted” sticker.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, cast their votes in New York.
