The former Disney Channel star celebrated that she is home just in time to vote for the midterm elections, and the photo she shared on Instagram literally warmed our hearts. Demi was getting treatment after she suffered an overdose in July, which nearly ended her life. Not only are we glad to see that she is healthy and that she also looks more beautiful than ever, but also that she is still using her platform to send a positive message.

Demi posed for a photo prior to casting her vote for the 2018 elections.

"I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!🗳 🇺🇸 now go out and #VOTE!!!!" she captioned the adorable photo of herself wearing a denim jacket and black jeans. How amazing does she look?! Even her skin and hair are glowing!

The singer was believed to be staying in rehab through the rest of 2018.

But she was spotted out and about alongside designer Henry Levy this past weekend. TMZ reported that the pair went to get sushi at Matsuhisa on Saturday, November 3, and on Sunday, November 4, they were spotted out and about getting coffee together. 

The Grammy nominee has stayed silent on social media for months.

This is the first time Demi has posted on social media since August 5. The last post she shared was when she released a statement about her health condition, telling fans that she will continue fighting. She has since deleted the post from her page.

The last post she shared on Instagram was just days before paramedics were called to her home in Hollywood Hills, California, after she was found unconscious after a long night of partying. Demi spent weeks in the hospital and was then transfered directly to a treatment facility where she has spent the last few months. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer revealed in June that she had relapsed with a new song called "Sober," in which she apologized to her family and fans for breaking her sobrierity after six years.  

Demi has always used her platform to speak on important issues.

It comes as no surprise that Demi found it extremely important to urge others to vote, even though her own health is so fragile at this time. She campaigned alongside Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Presidential Elections and has advocated for better mental health resources for those struggling with those issues. We are so glad to see that she is back on her feet and absolutely glowing. We wish her all the strength, discipline and peace it will take to continue fighting her addiction. She's a great reminder that there's no excuse when it comes to exercising your right to vote. If you care, you'll find a way!
