Somehow we are in the middle of October and election day (November 3) is a mere three weeks away. As we approach a historic election day, the responsibility to vote only grows. To help fuel all the eligible voters, Michelle Obama and LeBron James have teamed up and announced a voting initiative to encourage early voters. 


When We All Vote, an organization founded by Michelle Obama, and LeBron’s More Than A Vote, join together to provide voters across the nation with transportation, food, music, PPE gear, information and voter protection support from October 18 to October 31. 


“Millions of Americans have already cast their ballots, and with only 21 days until Election Day, making your plan to vote early is critical,” Michelle Obama said. “It’s now up to us to do everything in our power to get our friends and family ready to vote early and safely together. We can’t leave anyone behind. I’m proud of the work When We All Vote will do with More Than a Vote and our partners to help provide on-the-ground support for Americans who will cast their ballots early.”
