As Americans across the country make their ways to the voting booths, Jewish celebrities are using social media to encourage voter turnout and speak their minds about presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Comedian Sarah Silverman, who supported Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries, shared an article calling on undecided progressives to vote for Clinton.

Actress Zooey Deschanel, who converted to Judaism last year before marrying producer Jacob Pechenik, simply tweeted: “Vote!!!”

“Broad City” star Abbi Jacobson shared a Hillary Clinton campaign video and said she had already voted for the Democratic nominee.

Lena Dunham shared a photo of herself with fellow Jewish comedian Amy Schumer and actresses Amber Tamblyn and America Ferrera in front of Clinton campaign signs. The caption reads, “My Nasty Women!!!” During the third presidential debate, Republican nominee Donald Trump called Clinton a “nasty woman”; the phrase was later coopted by supporters of the Democratic nominee.

“Beastie Boys” singer and guitarist Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz joked that there might be a Jewish voting booth conspiracy at play.

Sarah Michelle Gellar endorsed Clinton, calling her “the most qualified person to run our country.” Gellar also said that she wanted her daughter to grow up with a woman president. “I’ve worked my entire life with that glass ceiling over my head and now it’s time to shatter that,” she wrote.

Alison Brie, who has acted in “Mad Men” and “Community,” shared her support for Clinton by using the hashtag #ImWithHer.

Simon Helberg made a dark suggestion about Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.” In a later tweet, “The Big Bang Theory” actor called Trump “an ignorant, white racist man.”

“West Wing” star Joshua Malina shared a photo of his ballot, showing that he voted for Clinton.

Kirk Douglas also revealed that he had cast his vote by mail for Hillary Clinton, The Jewish Journal reported. The Jewish actor, who has drawn links between Trump and Adolf Hitler, was born in 1916, four years before the 19th Amendment granted American women the right to vote.
