It’s common to see celebrities lend their voices to get-out-the-vote PSAs, or encouraging their fans to vote on social media. But in anticipation of Election Day next Tuesday, a number of stars are actually on the ground across the country, showing up at a candidate’s events or actually canvassing door to door.

Here’s a list of famous faces getting involved, that will be updated as Election Day nears:

Oprah also hit the campaign trail for Abrams, and gave a moving speech at a campaign event.

She cheered along with campaigners chanting, “You get a vote! And you get a vote! And you get a vote!” while sitting down with the gubernatorial candidate.

Michael B. Jordan was also in Georgia, going door to door to encourage black voters to participate in Tuesday’s election.
