Miley Cyrus Visits GMU To "Register Voters" For Hillary One Day After Registration Deadline Passes

On Saturday, singer/actress Miley Cyrus campaigned for Hillary Clinton on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. Cyrus visited dorms, met with students, and encouraged people to register to vote and to vote for Hillary Clinton come November. There's just one small issue--Virginia's voter registration deadline was Friday, October 21, and Cyrus visited the school on October 22nd. 

Whoops!

Given that 81 percent of GMU students are Virginia residents and therefore can no longer register to vote in the state as of Friday, it seems as though perhaps the timing wasn't exactly the best for Cyrus' visit. While in theory it's possible that she was able to register some out-of-state students who still have time to get their registrations in, this just seems like a complete waste of time and did nothing to actually improve the democratic process.

Cyrus has threatened to leave the country if Donald Trump were elected president.
