Many races were still undecided Tuesday evening, but this social media phenomenon won in a landslide. The hashtag #GoVote2014 was still trending on Twitter as night fell, and more than 6 million people had shared on Facebook that they, too, cast their ballots in this year's midterm elections.

On Instagram, the accessories du jour were the "I voted" sticker and a smile — and even celebrities joined the party.
