A series of bikini photos posted to Instagram by Kylie Jenner created a wave of commotion for one very unexpected reason.
In a screenshot from the 23-year-old beauty mogul’s account, it’s revealed vote.org saw a 1500% increase in traffic to the site after the reality star urged her 196 million followers to vote in the upcoming US election.
According to TMZ, Kylie has attracted nearly 50,000 potential new registered voters after her political push.
The steamy photos showed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posing on a lounger wearing a bandeau Dior number.
“7th day of fall,” she captioned the first photo, before taking a stand with her next uploads, accompanying the snaps with the caption: “but are you registered to vote? click the link in my bio.. let’s make a plan to vote together.”
Khloe Kardashians immediately commented saying: “I’m registered” while singer La'Britney said: “Ain’t nobody thinking about voting with you in this bikini”.
Kylie isn’t the only Jenner sister moving to push people to register to vote, with her older sister, Kendall, taking part in a rare Instagram Live last week to urge people to vote in the upcoming US election.
“As I’ve been getting ready to vote I really wanted to make sure that you guys are ready to vote and ready and registered and you feel great about it.”
Kendall’s Live was with Jon Favreau, co-founder of Crooked Media, who said at one point: "If you don't like what's happening in America right now, I honestly think this election is your last chance to change it."
"Voting won't elect a savior, it won't solve all our problems, but voting will give us a chance to do something about climate change, systemic racism, healthcare, and education. Voting will give us a chance to make sure that our politics isn't as f—ked up as it is right now, and that we're not all at each other's throats like we are right now."
