"Making sure our friends and family have a plan to vote will make all the difference in this election. So, here's my challenge to you: text three people in your life today who might not vote and ask them to join your #VotingSquad and make a plan to vote together," she wrote in the caption.

She went on to state that she has also tagged some of her friends asking them to vote.
