Taylor Swift voted for the very first time Thursday, October 30 at home in Sumner County, Tenn. Refusing to mention which candidate she voted for, she did admit that casting her ballot made her feel "so completely American."
Sharing her first ever voting experience to People magazine, Swift said, "The line wrapped around the building, but I can honestly tell you that it was worth the wait." She continued stating, "I felt like I really accomplished something special. It's like exercising - you think about it and you're like, 'Wow, there's going to be a long line, there's going to be a lot of effort involved,' but afterwards you feel so good."
"I wasn't going to be able to vote on Nov. 4 because I'm going to be in L.A.," she added. "But there wasn't a chance I was going to let this slip away."
Speaking about president candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, Swift told People, "I watched the debates and I read all kinds of articles on each person and each vice president and what they believe in and where their priorities are." She, nevertheless, went with her "gut instinct" when the time has come for her to decide her choice for the next U.S. president. "I wavered back and forth the entire time I was waiting in line and when I got into the voting booth, I said, 'That's the one I'm voting for,' and I pressed the button. And I feel good about it!" she stated.
