Michelle Obama Reminds Us What’s At Stake with 100 Days Until 2020 Election
Former first lady Michelle Obama has filmed and posted a video reminding voters that we’re just 100 days away from the 2020 election that “could not be more important for the future of our country.”
“We’ve only got 100 days left … and we’ve got to direct every ounce of energy we have into making sure everyone we know understands the importance of their voice and their vote,” Obama said. Her message was released by When We All Vote, a nonpartisan organization committed to voter registration. The former FLOTUS co-chairs the group, which has an overarching goal to decrease the race and age gap in voter participation.
When We All Vote implemented digital voter registration techniques to use ahead of November, and also supported a mail-in voting push meant to help alleviate pandemic-related challenges to voting in person on election day.
