Former First Lady Michelle Obama and NBA Finals MVP LeBron James have partnered together to put together a voter drive. In the two weeks leading up to the election, More Than A Vote and When We All Vote will provide “provide information, transportation, food, music, personal protective equipment and voter protection support to Americans near early voting sites in cities around the country.” The two organizations will target key cities like Detroit, Houston, Philadelphia and Charlotte among others.
“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,” Obama said.
“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.”
In the end, the duo hopes to “build momentum and excitement around voting early.” The last day to vote for the upcoming general election is November 3.
