A bikini picture Kylie Jenner posted on Instagram wasn’t just meant for likes — it was also meant for votes.
The 23-year-old influencer and beauty mogul posted two bathing suit snapshots of herself on the platform Monday.
“But are you registered to vote?” the caption of the post read. “Click the link in my bio.. let’s make a plan to vote together.”
Vote.org, a website that allows people to register to vote and check their registration status, reported that the post gave the website a 1,500% increase in traffic. Forty-eight thousand users visited the website’s voter registration and verification tool, a company spokeswoman told Fox. It is unclear how many out of that group actually registered to vote.
Jenner has close to 200 million followers, making her the fifth-most followed account on the app. This post, in particular, garnered just over 9.6 million likes.
Vote.org CEO Andrea Hailey told Fox News, “After Kylie Jenner’s Instagram post, the surge in interactions with Vote.org’s registration verification tool speaks to an energy among young Americans who want to make sure their voices are heard this election.”
