“When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realise it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else's shoes.

"Because when one person buys into negativity online the effects are felt exponentially. It's time to not only, but to act."

In the video, which is believed to have been filmed in their new home in California, Meghan, 39, called the election the "most important one of our lifetime".

She added: "Every four years we are told the same thing, that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is.

"When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do and you deserve to be heard."
