Michelle Obama’s Hitting The Road To Help You Register To Vote

Michelle Obama will travel the country to help people register to vote and commemorate the 53rd anniversary of the passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 starting in September. Through nonpartisan voter initiative When We All Vote, the former first lady, who is a co-chair of the organization, will “ensure that every eligible American casts their vote.” The “Week of Action” will take place from Sept. 22-29 in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, Houston, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

“Voting is the only way to ensure that our values and priorities are represented in the halls of power,” Obama says in a statement in When We All Vote’s press release. “And it’s not enough to just vote for president every four years. We all have to vote in every single election: for mayor, governor, school board, state legislature and Congress. The leaders we elect to these offices help determine just about every aspect of our lives and our democracy. So the future of our families, our communities and our country belongs to those of us who show up, cast our votes, and make our voices heard.”
