Much of America may vote by secret ballot, but The Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) had no trouble telling the world whom he voted for in the 2012 presidential election.

The night before Election Day, he live-streamed a chat at the Yap TV Election 2012 Celebrity GOTV Google Hangout to explain why he was supporting Barack Obama. (One of the reasons probably had something to do with the fact that Ian met the man himself in the summer of 2012.)

The next day he tweeted:

Finally, when President Obama was reelected, Ian shared his joy:

There you go. Ian Somerhalder, political junky.
