Jay captioned the photo: "For the first time in my entire life I am voting in a presidential election."

"To the people who take the right of voting for granted. Believe me people are losing thier lives trying to get such a right."

"My north star Fadia helped me to be active to understand the value of being able to have a voice."

Adding in Arabic: "Fadia, you are my compass. May you be fine at every election."

A friend of Jay jokingly asked him who did he vote for.

"Congratulations Jay, but who did you vote for? Your secret is in a well, won't tell anybody."

Jay laughed at her comment, while another commentator wrote "He surely voted for Biden", and another one said: "I am sure he voted for moral values and decency and humanity; something America lagged in the last 4 years!!!"
