Justin Timberlake doesn’t want to hear any excuses from those who aren’t voting this year – the pop star flew all the way from Los Angeles to Memphis to cast his ballot. 

Timberlake uploaded a photo on Instagram of him voting on Monday. According to Memphis affiliate WREG, he went to a polling place in Germantown. 

According to the Associated Press, voters are not allowed to take photos or videos while in polling places. Voters are not allowed to take photos or videos while in polling places. They're only allowed to use electronic devices for informational purposes to assist during voting.

Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett released the following statement:

“We’re thrilled Justin can’t stop the feeling when it comes to voting so much that he voted early in person and is promoting voting to his millions of fans. In Tennessee, using electronic devices inside polling locations to take pictures, videos or make calls is not allowed. We hope this encourages more people than ever to vote, but Tennesseans should only use their phones inside polling locations for informational purposes to assist while voting, like our free GoVoteTN mobile app. If polling officials discover someone violating this law they will ask the voter to put their phone away.”
