The actor, who now resides in Austin, McConaughey shared a video from the voting line.
With a #ivoted hashtag attached to the tweet, McConaughey skipped his classic "Alright, alright, alright" line and said, "In Texas, in line, early voting, get out there, cast yours, just keep living."

In the replies, one user shared a photo of McConaughey posing with U.S. Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke.
