Between Anna Wintour's epic fundraising efforts and several celeb-filled PSA-style videos, there's no doubt that the fashion industry is becoming an increasingly powerful presence in politics today.

And now that election day is almost upon us, all of the industry's best and brightest are taking to Twitter to remind us how very important it is that everyone votes tomorrow.

Many took the opportunity to do some last minute campaigning for Obama.

Andre Leon Talley tweeted: "Make an effort to talk about nothing but getting out to vote for the next 72 hours. Vote Obama. Tell everyone you meet. It's Obama."

While Chanel Iman tweeted the picture at left with the caption, "Voter in the making spreading the word!!!" [ed note: Awww]

Prabal Gurung chimed in, "Lets vote!!4 more years of @barackobama"

But regardless of who you'll be voting for, the most important thing is that you actually cast your ballot. Rachel Roy tweeted, "There were 38,818 votes cast in the US's 1st Pres. election, compared w/ 69,456,897 in 2008. Let’s top it tomorrow! #election2012"

Russell Simmons wrote simply (and accurately), "We vote we win!!"

Even those in the fashion industry who aren't U.S. citizens made a plea for everyone to vote. Bryanboy tweeted, "To all my American friends, please vote for Obama. Thank you. Love, Bryan -- hopefully soon to be an American."

Alexa Chung added, "Sadly I can't vote in America, if I could I would and I would choose #Obama please vote!!"

Urban Outfitters provided further motivation to cast your ballot. "Go vote and you'll get 20% off your purchase tomorrow. In store only!"

Kim Kardashian tweeted a photo of her ballot, saying, "Sending in my absentee ballot now!!! Make sure you vote!!!!"

Listen guys, if Kim K can do it, so can you. No excuses.

Unsure of where to cast your ballot? Go here, and type in your work or home address. If you're in New York, and your polling station has been affected by Hurricane Sandy, fret not: According to this New York Times tweet, New Yorkers will be allowed to vote at any polling place.
