Tuesday is voting day across the United States, and a number of stars from the sports world have made it known they performed their civic duty.

ESPN's Malika Andrews reported Monday the NBA made a concerted effort to emphasize the voting process and helped set up voting registration tables at the Las Vegas Summer League as well as the rookie transition program.

Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul headlined the NBA players who took to the polls Tuesday.

Rock the Vote partnered with the Women's National Basketball Players Association to convey the importance of voting, and Renee Montgomery, Gabby Williams and Alysha Clark helped rally WNBA fans for Election Day.

As polls opened Tuesday morning, the NFL Players Association reminded football fans to "get out and vote."

Terrell Suggs, Darrelle Revis and Randall Cobb were among those to echo that call during and even before election day.

The theme carried over to the world of baseball as well.

Polls closed at 6 p.m. ET in Indiana and Kentucky, with voting concluding at 1 a.m. ET in parts of Alaska, according to the New York Times' Astead W. Herndon and Jugal K. Patel.

That leaves some time for sports fans—especially those on the West Coast—to get to their local polling stations before it's too late.
