Election Day in the United States is Tuesday, but Americans have been racing to the polls in record numbers already, with early voting numbers already accounted for more than two-thirds of all the ballots cast in the 2016 presidential election.

And among those early voters is Kendrick Perkins.

Not only did the former Celtic and NBC Sports Boston analyst vote, it was also the very first time that he and his wife Vanity have ever voted.

"Just voted for the first time in my life, because right now it's either vote or die," Perkins said in the video he posted to social media. "More than a vote and I'm dead serious. I just voted... I tell you one thing, you better make your next move your best move."

Perkins isn't alone; approximately 100 million Americans will be cast by Tuesday, when polls will be open across the country.
