As we countdown the days until the 2020 US presidential election, celebrities are continuing to use their voices to stress the importance of voting. In an interview with Fitzy & Wippa, Miley Cyrus recently discussed the importance of the election during a time of great social and political unrest in the US and urged young voters to mobilise and head to the polls.

"I'm 27, I know I've never experienced an election this important before — and I'm not sure I ever will again," she said. "I can't express the importance enough — especially of young people — [of] getting out there, being active, and making sure that their friends and family are voting and have their information about mailing in, about the state of our country right now, the hate, the pain. It's just crucial that we get out there and make changes — and have someone fit for the job running our country."

"It's kind of rock bottom here right now. So I think that it's a desperate time — and that's when people really step up."

While constant news updates about the state of the country can be stressful, Miley believes it's important to channel that concern by focusing on the issues that matter most to you and voting accordingly. She went on to explain that she doesn't believe in the motto, "Don't worry, be happy." "I believe that worry is healthy," she said. "Worry is why we're washing our hands, why we're wearing our masks, why we're keeping our distance . . . nothing is just the way that it is. You can work for it, and I think that we're realising that now."

Miley also added that she's proud of the way young people have stepped up to promote necessary positive change and that she hopes to see this impressive level of motivation reflected in the polls. "I think young people are really stepping up to the plate, really taking charge, and getting mobilised," she said. "I think it's also the dedication, working and advocating tirelessly. I really this so. It's kind of rock bottom here right now. So I think that it's a desperate time — and that's when people really step up."
