Hillary Clinton urged people to hit the polls Tuesday, while President Trump was noticeably quiet on Twitter on the morning of Election Day.

Clinton — who ran against Trump as the Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential election and won the popular vote — stressed the importance for people to go out and vote, writing it’s time to say “enough” following two years of watching “this administration attack and undermine our democratic institutions and values.”

“But we won’t just vote against radicalism, bigotry, and corruption today,” Clinton tweeted. “We’ll vote for fantastic candidates all over the country—including a historic number of women—who want to raise wages, fight for justice, and help more people get health care.

“If they win, they’ll do great things for America,” she continued. “Let’s exercise our birthright as Americans today, put those people in office, and continue the hard work of saving our democracy. It’ll take all of us. Happy Election Day.”

Trump had no public events set for Tuesday and has been known to tweet often on days when his schedule is clear. On Oct. 16, for example, Trump shared more than 20 tweets, including one where he referred to Stormy Daniels as “Horseface.”

Trump has frequently urged his followers to vote in Tuesday’s elections in recent days, often voicing his support for Republican candidates in their respective races.

But he went hours without tweeting on Tuesday as many others encouraged people to vote, as Trump’s most recent tweet was shared at 1:36 a.m. E.T.

That tweet by Trump included photos from his rally in Cape Girardeau, Mo., and urged people to vote for Republican candidate Josh Hawley, who is running for Senate.

Trump shared a number of tweets calling for people to vote on Monday.

“You have been loyal and faithful to your Country, and now you have a President that is loyal and faithful to you,” one of them read. “Get out tomorrow, and http://VOTE.GOP !”
