First-time voter Taylor Swift waited in line for an hour and a half to cast her ballot on the last day of the early voting period in Sumner County, Tenn., last Thursday.
"I wasn't going to be able to vote on Nov. 4 because I'm going to be in L.A.," the 18-year-old star told People.com.
The queue "wrapped around the building," she said. Still, the experience was "worth the wait" and made her feel "so completely American."
"I feel like I really accomplished something special," said Taylor, who passed the time signing autographs. "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."
Taylor continued: "I've never, ever seen in any election the passion about voting before in people my age. Everyone I know is obsessed with their opportunity to vote. I see people getting involved and there is something really, really beautiful about that."
So who'd she vote for: McCain or Obama? Taylor replied that she "can't share" that information, but said "I went with my gut instinct."
