Facebook continues to add features to help encourage people in the U.S. to vote in the midterm elections Nov. 6.

People can go to the social network’s Town Hall feature and set their Election Day plans by finding their polling locations, setting a time to vote and setting a reminder on Facebook.

In addition, the I Voted stickers that have been a Facebook staple for years have been extended to Instagram.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network said in a blog post that people on Instagram in the U.S. will be able to share an I Voted sticker and a We Voted! Story through Election Day.

To share the I Voted sticker, Instagrammers can open their camera, take a selfie, tap the sticker icon and choose I Voted from the tray. Users whose language is set to Spanish will see a Yo Voté version of the sticker.

After the sticker is added to a photo, other users can tap the sticker to find their polling locations via nonpartisan site Get to the Polls.

When several of an Instagram user’s friends post Stories with the I Voted sticker, a We Voted! Story will appear at the front of that user’s Stories bar.

Instagram said in its blog post, “This functionality is new to Instagram, and it provides a way for you to see the people you follow share a moment together in Stories. We’re excited to bring this feature to the community in new ways in the future.” David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
