If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

Since its launch less than a week ago, over 130,000 people across the U.S. have added the Voter 2020 badge to their OkCupid profiles and YEP, you bet those who share that they're voters on their profiles have been getting more love and action than those who don't. As they should!
Results from this campaign have actually found that registered voters are 63% more likely to get a match and 85% more likely to receive a message.
What does this mean, you ask? Well, people on dating apps tend to be attracted to those who care about political happenings, have similar morals, and are passionate about similar causes. This is further evidenced in Odyssey's survey that showed dating app users are more likely to swipe left on someone with differing political views.
Through this OkCupid campaign, it was also found that politics are the number one dealbreaker for users, with 76% of respondents saying their date's political opinions are very important to them. Other interesting findings revealed the following:
