Dwayne Wade's better half, Gabrielle Union, stocked up on the essentials to keep her busy while waiting to vote on Election Day: an official voting manual, Isabel Wilkerson's "The Warmth of Other Suns," and the November 2012 issue of InStyle magazine with a stunning Halle Berry on the cover.
Mitt Romney supporter Stacey Dash pic-stiched her way to the polls, voting early on October 22 in California.
Shonda Rhimes, the masterful mind behind hit ABC dramas "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice," and "Scandal," shared how excited she was to cast her vote, even with "over-curly hair and cleavage."
"I know its tough out there but PLEASE stay in line. Look at that little face. She needs you...," tweeted "Scandal" star Kerry Washington. The actress took to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she encouraged voters to stand the wait and make sure their voices were heard.
