Celebrities take to social media to say #ImWithHer or just get out the vote

"A house divided against itself cannot stand."

The 19th century US president Abraham Lincoln immortalised this biblical quote, but could it be hitting a little too close to home for one celebrity couple this US election season?

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen publicly denied on Instagram that she is rooting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

However, her husband Tom Brady, a star American football player, has been seen wearing the Trump campaign's "Make America Great Again" gear and was cited by Mr Trump as a "friend" and celebrity supporter.

Celebrities have overwhelmingly flocked to the presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Some, like singer Rihanna, used the hashtag #ImWithHer as they posted pictures of themselves fresh from the polls.

And some, like Fresh Off The Boat star Constance Wu, wore white - the colour of the women's suffrage movement in the early 20th century - to express support for Mrs Clinton's potential history-making moment as the first woman president of the United States.

Other high-profile entertainers simply focused on exhorting citizens to exercise their right to the franchise.

"Hope everyone went out and #voted," tweeted Hilary Duff with a photo showing the singer and actress with the "I Voted" oval stickers given to all successful voters on Election Day.

Actress Gina Rodriguez tweeted as polls started closing: "STAY IN LINE. MY PEOPLE. MY WARRIORS. IF YOU ARE IN LINE TO VOTE, STAY IN LINE."
