With Election Day fast-approaching on Nov. 3, it's time to start making your way to the polls and also encourage others to do the same.
With that, celebrities, influencers and retailers have been showcasing merchandise that inspires others to get out the vote.
In September, actress Katie Holmes was spotted wearing a black "VOTE NOW" t-shirt from Old Navy while wearing a face mask.
Also, former first lady Michelle Obama's "VOTE" necklace worn for the Democratic National Convention had many people wondering where it was from.
It didn't take long for the world to find out her 14K yellow gold adornment was from Los Angeles-based designer ByChari.
"Michelle Obama is one of the most impactful women on the planet -- not to mention a style icon," the brand wrote in a post. "To say we're inspired by her dedication to helping others and lifting up women and minorities would be an understatement."
ByChari continued by thanking Obama and her stylist Meredith Koop for this special opportunity and saying, "We hope that everyone lets their voice be heard this November by voting."
Following the huge interest in Obama's necklace, her nonprofit, nonpartisan organization When We All Vote has released "Vote 4EVER Merch," which is a collection of everything from apparel to lifestyle products. Items are from diverse brands across the country, including Black-owned and woman-owned businesses.
The new line is a part of the collective's mission to change the culture around voting and increase participation in every election.
"The vision for this collection was to create unique covetable pieces in collaboration with talented creatives and business owners around the country," Meredith Koop, When We All Vote's creative adviser of merchandise, said in a statement. "With so many 'vote' products on the market, we put a lot of energy and soul into curating high-quality products that are thoughtfully designed. Made in Brooklyn, Durham, D.C., Detroit and L.A., our Vote 4Ever Merch brands in some small way showcase the beautiful diverse country that America is.”
When We All Vote plans to release another set of items in October with a percentage of proceeds earned going back to the organization.
