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. Of the 5,183 new registrations in Tennessee so far this month, at least 2,144 came in the last 36 hours, an increase from the 2,811 voters who registered in September and 951 in August.

In a post shared with her 112 million Instagram followers, Swift announced she would be voting for Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper for the Senate and House respectively.

The organization also said it received at least 2,144 voter registrations from Tennessee residents in the past 36 hours since her post, nearly half of the 5,183 people who have registered to vote there in October.

According to The Washington Post, more than 105,000 new people registered on the site to vote within 48 hours of Swift's post. Almost half of this month's registrations - 2,144 of 5,183 - came within the last 36 hours. Vote.org typically has 14,078 average daily visitors, Guthrie said. 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.

"These are not MY Tennessee values", the "Fearless" singer said online.

Swift got political for the very first time on Sunday (Oct. 7), sharing her support for two Tennessee democrats in the races for Senate and House of Representatives.

Bredesen faces republican nominee Rep. Marsha Blackburn in the November 6. election to replace Sen. "So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count".

Swift's previous unwillingness to weigh in on political matters led some members of the alt-right movement to claim her as one of their own, a phenomenon that her representatives have rejected.

Blackburn's campaign didn't comment on Swift's post, but President Trump did. She then cited Blackburn's history of voting against gay rights and the Violence Against Women Act, adding, "These are not MY Tennessee values".

"Thank God for Taylor Swift", Guthrie said. 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.

Through just nine days in October, more Americans have registered to vote through Vote.org than any other full month this year. "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now".
