Show-business notables including Jeff Goldblum and Mindy Kaling took time out from their entertainment duties on Tuesday to cast their votes in the midterm elections, and to encourage others to do the same.

From tweets boasting poll selfies to the classic “I Voted” sticker pose, these stars have shared their voting status and their reasons to vote.

Posing in a suave black leather jacket and hat, actor Jeff Goldblum proudly wore his “I Voted” sticker on Instagram. In his post caption, Goldblum included an inspirational quote from the fictional President Thomas J. Whitmore from the 1996 film “Independence Day.”

“Mankind — that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests…We're fighting for our right to live, to exist… ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!’” -President Thomas J. Whitmore, “Independence Day,” 1996. TODAY, EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE: VOTE!!! ????????????????????????????????????????

In a short Twitter video, Zendaya showed off her sticker, asking followers if they’ve also fulfilled their civic duty.
