Selena Gomez and her family stroll around the Farmers Market on Ventura Blvd in Los Angeles, California, this Sunday afternoon.
The 16-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star has been making mall appearances in support of the “UR Votes Count” campaign which encourages teens to find a mall location near you or vote online at UrVotesCount.com. Selena is the spokesperson for the campaign and kicked off the campaign on Aug. 16 in Glendale, Calif.
“I think it is important for kids to vote and be heard,” Selena said in a press release. “Being a teen myself, I think it’s really important we are educated on the issues that affect us all so when we’re eligible, we’re fully prepared to take on one of our greatest privileges and responsibilities - voting.”
