Why Isn’t Pretty Little Liars Star Shay Mitchell Voting?

The Pretty Little Liars stars are a pretty politically engaged bunch, and none more so than Shay Mitchell (Emily). The gorgeous star is an impassioned activist, especially about human rights. So why isn't she voting in today's US President election?

There's a very simple answer: because she's Canadian!

Since she isn't a US citizen, Shay can't vote in the election. However, that hasn't stopped her from encouraging her US fans to get out and make their voices heard.

Last night (November 5), Shay tweeted, "If I could vote in the USA I would. Please make sure you do your part and vote tomorrow!!! #Canadiantweet #Obama2012 :)"

So if you're eligible, remember to get out and vote today. You'll make Shay proud!
