If national elections in countries like the US and India are regarded as dances of democracy, large numbers of new voters therein should see it as an unmissable prom night. To get these young citizens out on polling day is vital—to that end Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s confab with Selena Gomez was a masterstroke. “As someone who cares for her country, not voting is just not an option,” said the millionaire singer-actor, a first-time voter. Mental health was discussed too, and so was lupus, a disease that had afflicted Selena. Expanding the Affordable Healthcare Act, said Kamala quickly, was a priority for Joe Biden. Though her Hispanic community—a huge block in her home state, Texas—is still making up its mind, Selena, it seems, has made an educated choice.
