If you’re 18+, it’s time to VOTE!” she wrote in a series of Instagram stories. “We know we live in a special place. And adding all of our voices to the conversation, speaking up for communities or organisations that mean something to us — that’s what helps keep it that way.”

“There’s also two referendums to vote in this year: the End Of Life Choice Bill and the Cannabis Legalisation And Control Bill,” she continued. “Go have a read about each of those and vote on the day! … Do it for our beautiful country and for me. And next year I’ll give you something in return.”
