Some of the stars in "Hamilton" who lectured Vice President-elect Mike Pence while he attended the play Friday night on their fears about the incoming administration have not voted in past elections for years, according to voting records.

Pence attended the Broadway hit with his daughter and her cousins when Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, delivered a message to the vice president-elect.

"We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights. We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us," Dixon said on stage.

Many "Hamilton" actors, including Dixon, have not voted in recent elections to express their political beliefs at the ballot box, according to a RadarOnline investigation.

Records for 2016 are not yet available, making it unclear whether the Broadway players voted in this year's presidential contest.

Four years ago, however, Dixon did not vote during President Obama's reelection campaign, public records show.

The actor who plays Thomas Jefferson, Seth Stewart, did not vote in 2012 either. He did vote in 2008 during Obama's first presidential bid, though.

Javier Munoz, who plays Hamilton himself, has not voted since he first registered in 2006.

The man who portrays James Madison, Okieriete "Oak" Onaodowan, registered to vote in 2005 but has not cats his ballot since then.

When Pence first showed up to view the play, he was greeted with both boos from some of the audience, the Daily Mail noted.

President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter to show how displeased he was with this reaction and the cast's speech.
