45-year-old comedian and actress Chelsea posted a video to her Instagram, showing her completely topless with vote stickers covering her nipples.

“PSA: Democracy means that every vote is counted! If you see something that doesn't look right at the polls, or need help voting, call the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline: (866) 687-8683. My apologies to my nieces and nephews,” she wrote.

Chelsea has been a strong advocate for urging people to vote over the past few months and has shown her support for the Biden campaign.

“I feel the same way about Halloween as Melania does about Christmas, so this is my one and only #Halloween decoration,” Chelsea wrote three days ago, alongside a snap of her holding up a poster depicting Donald Trump as an orange pumpkin.

Meanwhile, singer Lizzo, who campaigned for Joe Biden in Detroit, uploaded a nude snap to her Instagram page, showing her draped in the American flag.

“When I think of this country I don’t think of its laws I think of its people. I think about how we were raised to be patriotic of violence, propaganda & war. I think about how this country is owned by the oppressor and how the oppressed are locked in a valley of capitalism,” she wrote.

“But I also think of the young people who refuse to be spoon fed mistruths. I think of the elders who bucked against hateful prejudices even when it felt impossible....Because of you, I’m still hopeful.

“I believe in a country that teaches the true history so we can better understand where we live and how we can do better. I believe in a country that listens to the cries of the protester and doesn’t politicize death.

“I believe in restoration of this beautiful land and respecting the communities of people who owned America before colonizers renamed it.

“I believe in fairness, equality, a complete removal of religion in places where it does not belong. Let religion live in the churches and places of worship... the quiet prayer rooms, the joyful congregations.. and out of Congress.

“I believe in so much, and if I believe it one day I can see it. It may not be tomorrow it may not be today, but it will be one day if we stay activated. We the people, ALL the people, deserve it.

Today’s the last day to vote. Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting.”

Their photos come just weeks after 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 was 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 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”.
