With so many pop stars vigorously stumping for individual candidates during the homestretch of this year’s campaigns, it’s OK if you’ve come to think that musicians play some kind of role in deciding who our next elected officials will be. An electoral college comprised solely of the extended Carter-Knowles family? Now that’s a political system we can get behind.

While these stars are influential when it comes to discovering new artistsstyle trends and lifestyle mantras, they, like you, are also entitled to their own opinions. You’ve heard what Jay-Z and Beyoncé have had to say in favor their friend Barack, read the message—written loud and clear—on Katy Perry’s various latex ensembles and likely watched Meat Loaf’s Mitt Romney freestyle at least six times. But if you tend to get all of your news and political platforms from Twitter accounts of the rich and famous, make sure you realize who isn’t a U.S. citizen over the age of 18 before you start sending aggressive @ messages shaming them for their apathy.

Nope, we still haven’t pushed “Gangnam Style” to No. 1, and we haven’t found a way for a South Korean native to vote in presidential elections.

23. Ed Sheeran

Barring any future interference from Taylor Swift, Ed still calls England home.
 
Even with these silly restrictions, that doesn’t mean the aforementioned stars don’t want to vote.
 

 
We’ll try not to rub in those feelings of hope and possibility that permeate through the voting booth too much, Bieb. Talk to immigration; maybe you’ll get a turn in 2016?
