Gigi Hadid wants YOU to make a plan and get to the polls!

Over the weekend, the 25-year-old shared a mirror selfie wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the word “Vote” on it. Alongside her picture were a series of infographics showing early voting dates by state and an empowering caption for fans — namely those old enough to vote. 

"I voted absentee last week with my daughter next to me, for an America I want her to see; but not just for us — for fellow Americans that are less privileged, with hope for a nation that is unified, that is empathetic, & for a leader that is compassionate," wrote Hadid.

The supermodel told followers who have voted early, gotten absentee ballots, or have a plan to get to the polls on Election Day that she’s proud of them. She encouraged fans to share their voting plans with her in the comments.

“Whatever your PLAN, I’m proud of you; make sure you have one !!! Let me know,” she wrote. 

Hadid’s call-to-action offered fans their first postpartum look at the model, who gave birth to her first child last month. She and boyfriend, former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, confirmed she was expecting in April after rumors had begun swirling that she was pregnant.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show that month, Hadid shared with host Jimmy Fallon that she was in fact pregnant and added: "Obviously, we wish they could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well-wishes and support."

Malik, who has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Hadid since late 2015, has also implored fans to do their civic duty. Earlier this month, he simply tweeted to his millions of followers: “Vote.”
