Kyle Lowry showed off his 'voted' sticker.

He shared the picture of his voting sticker on his Instagram story today.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson also took to social media to prove he cast his ballot.

He posted not once, but twice, about making sure to get your vote in.

Matt Thomas urged his followers to do their civic duty.

"Obviously, right now with everything going on in our country I think it’s very important that everyone’s voice is heard and that’s just one way for us Americans living outside of the States to vote and make our voice heard,” Thomas told the Guardian.

Nick Nurse has been telling Americans (including those in Canada) to vote for weeks.

Nurse has been targetting American voters in Canada. Nurse told CTV News that it is "unbelievable" that only 5% of Americans in Canada voted in 2016's election and he is aiming to increase that number this year.

Even the team's official Twitter also called on its American followers to cast their ballot.

They've also been sharing the players' posts.
