The 'Marry The Night' star says fans in four key states can opt to vote in favour of marriage equality this year.

Lady Gaga has urged voters in four American states to vote for marriage equality when they vote in today's US election (6th November).

The 'Born This Way' singer uploaded a video message for fans while out on her world tour in South America, explaining that this year's ballot papers have a special option in Maine, Washington, Maryland and Minnesota to vote to legalise gay marriage.

"Hey everybody this is Gaga. I just wanted to remind those of you who live in Maine, Minnesota, Washington or Maryland, that you can actually vote for marriage equality on the ballot this year," Gaga says in the video message posted online this week.

"So when you're choosing who you would like to be the next President elect, you can also click on a little box that says that you support marriage equality," the 'You & I' singer explained.

Katy Perry has also been urging fans to support the US election, fresh from performing at several rallies in support of Barack Obama's reelection campaign.

"Check out my 91 year-old grandma @ the polls for early voting in Las Vegas, NV! U got no excuse!" Katy tweeted, alongside a picture of her grandma placing her vote.
