In an Instagram story Tuesday, the Folklore singer provided her fans with resources to make sure they can vote in the November election. "Hey guys, it's National Voter Registration Day today. The election is November 3. It's really coming, and I've put together a swipe-up of resources," she said.

Swift's link, which brings people to a page on her site that'll direct people to Vote.org to figure out whatever they may need to vote. "You can register if you're a first time voter. You can check your registration. You can request an absentee ballot. You can figure out the process of voting early. We need everyone, and it is more important than I can even possibly say," she said.

While she does not call out President Donald Trump explicitly in the Instagram story, Swift has been a staunch critic of the president in the lead up to the election.

Most recently, the "cardigan" singer tweeted about Trump's attacks on the United States Postal Service. In a pair of August tweets, Swift called out Trump for attempting to dismantle the USPS while also taking a shot at how he's handled the COVID-19 pandemic. "Donald Trump's ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely," she tweeted.

Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely. Request a ballot early. Vote early.

In the tweets, she also called on her fans to request ballots early and vote.

Back in May, Swift also called out Trump for "stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism [his] entire presidency," in the midst of nationwide protests against police brutality in wake of George Floyd's death. "[Y]ou have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? 'When the looting starts the shooting starts'?" she questioned before voting to vote him out in the upcoming election.

After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump

While not directly an endorsement, Swift did share Senator Kamala Harris' tweet when she announced that she would be joining former Vice President Joe Biden on his campaign ticket as his pick for vice president.

This also wasn't the first time Swift had shared the message to get out the vote to her followers. In June, she tweeted her support of the Black Lives Matter movement and shared a similar Vote.org link, directing people to resources to vote.

Racial injustice has been ingrained deeply into local and state governments, and changes MUST be made there. In order for policies to change, we need to elect people who will fight against police brutality and racism of any kind. #BlackLivesMatter

We need to fight for mail-in voting for the 2020 election. No one should have to choose between their health and having their voice heard. https://t.co/4ImsKW1fQN
