Swift wins at AMAs, encourages fans to vote

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Taylor Swift won artist of the year at the American Music Awards.

She beat out Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone at the fan-voted show Tuesday night.

The singer, who opened up politically in a lengthy Instagram post this week, used her speech to encourage fans to vote.

“I just wanted to make a mention at the fact that this award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people, and you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6.”

She also won tour of the year and favorite pop/rock album with “reputation.”
