Sheryl Crow, a Grammy-Award winning musician, has launched a petition asking the Democratic and Republican national committees to shorten the primary election cycle.
"I think people are really tired of it. They've had it," Crow told The Wall Street Journal.
The musician launched an online petition that has more than 44,000 signees.
In the petition, Crow wrote the lengthy election cycle "has been extremely damaging and has incited fear and hatred in a country founded on the beauty of our differences and the desire to lift each person, no matter race, religion, political party, or economic status, to reach his or her fullest potential."
"If we could figure out a way to create some kind of parameters without infringing on people's freedom of speech, it would make for a more civilized process," Crow told the Journal.
If shortening the election season was on the ballot, she predicted voters would approve it.
During an appearance on "The View," Crow said the presidency used to be the most honorable role in the U.S., "and it needs to go back to that."
In 2012, the singer released a song called "Woman in the White House," which Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has used at campaign appearances.
