Hailey also reported a 115% increase in 18-year-old registrants compared to last year and said more than 1.3 million total visits to the site since her post.
The CEO of Vote.org also thanked the singer-songwriter for her efforts. “Dear @taylorswift13 – let these stats serve as our love letter to boost your voter turnout! 💌”, she wrote. “Together, we make democracy shine! 💫”
Vote.org Communications Director Nick Morrow as well divided by X that “the site averaged 13,000 users every 30 minutes.”
He followed up his post with a cute nod to the “13” in the stat, or Swift’s birth date and favorite number. “13! Let’s just say her reputation as a mastermind is well-deserved! #NVRD,” Morrow wrote.
