Lana Del Rey is encouraging her younger fans to vote in the 2016 Presidential election between candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The singer posted a video to Instagram to express how important the election is to her.
“I am just checking to see that you guys are watching [the Presidential Debates,” she says in the clip. “I think it is so important to have all the information that you can have to make the best decisions for your future.”
She further said, “When you are young, it just doesn’t seem like it’s important, but when you get older you want to trust your leaders and you want to trust your own decisions, and the only way to do that is to have as much information as you can.”
