Michelles challenge demonstrates the power of an individual vote in politics. She believes it's people like you who will make a difference this fall. Whether that's by registering for a job or by organizing your communities to make sure that everyone understands the importance of their voices and votes.
Michelle concluded the video with a thank you note to her viewers and a final thought. "Now, let's get to work!" she added. Back in January, the former First Lady announced her ambitious plan to register 1 million new voters and volunteers in an effort to combat voter suppression. "We must vote like the future of our democracy depends on it," she wrote in an open letter published in the New York Times.
