According to Guthrie, Vote.org had its second-busiest day of the year after Swift's post with 155,940 unique visitors to its website, making it the site's biggest day since National Voter Registration Day on September 25, when the site saw 304,942 unique visitors, up from a daily average of 14,078 visitors.
Kamari Guthrie, director of communications for Vote.org told Buzzfeed News that they have experienced an unprecedented flood of new voter registrations across America since Swift's post was posted. By comparison, the site registered 56,669 new voters registered the entire month of August and 190,178 in September.
"I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love", Swift wrote, saying she would vote for Democrats Phil Bredesen for the U.S. Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. She also declared her vote for Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen.
"These are not MY Tennessee values", Swift wrote.
Swift said the congresswoman "voted against equal pay for women".
The singer tends to stay above the political fray, but told her 112 million Instagram followers on Sunday she felt she needed to speak out ahead of the midterm elections in November. "Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me", the 28-year-old said.
Bredesen is thankful for Swift's support, writing in a tweet over the weekend, "Thank you for the kind words, [Taylor Swift]". I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country.
Swift said she could not "vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for all Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love". For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.
Swift's post has garnered almost 1.9 million "likes" and dozens of thousands of comments. "Lets say that I like Taylors music about 25 percent less now, OK?" [Taylor Swift] doesn't like your little games and she wants Tennesseans to know that you've been in the swamp long enough.
