Dua sat down for a conversation with democratic senator, Bernie Sanders, to talk about free healthcare in the UK, using her enormous platform to help educate people on the topic.
Stars everywhere have been urging people, especially young people, to register and get out to vote to have their say in who will become the next president, the results of which will be announced on November 3rd.

Niall's tweet has already gained almost half a million likes, once again revealing the enormous reach of pop stars' social platrforms.
