Beyoncé has shared her support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and California senator Kamala Harris a day before the 2020 presidential election.

On Monday, the singer shared a Boomerang clip to Instagram, in which she can be seen wearing an “I Voted” sticker and a Biden-Harris face mask with her matching Balmain hat and top.

“Come thru, Texas!” the 39-year-old captioned the short video directed at her home state, which is considered a critical swing state in the election. “#Vote.”

In addition to the endorsement, Beyoncé also shared another post aimed at getting her more than 155m followers to vote.

“The most important drop is at the ballot box,” a graphic shared by the musician reads, referring to her recent Ivy Park x Adidas collection, which was released last week.

This is not the first time The Lion King star has shared her endorsement of a presidential candidate. In 2016, Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z publicly stated their support for Hillary Clinton.

“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country, and know that her possibilities are limitless. We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I'm with her,” Beyoncé said during a speech at Clinton’s #GetOutTheVote concert, where she also performed.

With the endorsement, Beyoncé joins numerous other celebrities, including Robert De Niro, Taylor Swift and John Legend, who have publicly stated their support for the presidential candidate.
