Beyoncé was here…and she wants everyone to know it.

While her husband Jay-Z was busy performing at a rally in Ohio with President Obama (99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one), Beyoncé was busy giving her own endorsement – via a handwritten letter posted on her website.

The letter reads:

“President Obama,

Everyday we see your heart and character, inspiring all of us to give more of ourselves.

You are the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be.

You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.

All my respect and adoration,


She then took the next step and actually voted, posting the above photo (glamour shot with new bangs, natch), alongside her ballot.

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has gotten openly political. Earlier this year, she posted a letter she wrote to the First Lady, talking about how much she admired her, and how she loved that her daughter would grow up in a world with her around. Cute then. Cute now.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z also hosted a fundraiser for the Obama reelection campaign in New York in September. The superstar couple’s support goes way back – Beyoncé performed at the 2008 Inauguration, and also starred in the theme song for “Let’s Move,” the First Lady’s healthy eating initiative.

Remember this?
