A former first lady of the White House thinks bankrolling a party will encourage more Americans to vote at the upcoming election.
Michelle Obama is prepared to offer discounted food, rides to go vote, celebrity appearances, and even disc jockey entertainment for anyone who votes before the general election on Nov. 3.
The former Democratic first lady plans to hold multiple events in highly contested jurisdictions like Atlanta, Charlotte (North Carolina), Detroit, Milwaukee, Orlando (Florida), and Philadelphia.
In Georgia, early voters have already complained about having to wait several hours in line to cast their votes.
Obama is also offering personal protective equipment and free legal advice in a partnership between her “When We All Vote” and Los Angeles Laker LeBron James’s “More Than A Vote” organizations.
Ride-hailing service Lyft will provide discounted trips to early voting stations. At the same time, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Election Protection Coalition will send attorneys who will be available to anyone who wants free legal advice.
According to Reuters, other local partner organizations supporting the event will be offered a share in grants worth a combined $1 million.
Obama hopes many people who do not usually vote early will break their old habits and have a great time on her, despite the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus restrictions.
“Millions of Americans have already cast their ballots and with only 21 days until Election Day, making your plan to vote early is critical,” she said in a statement obtained by the newswire. “We cannot leave anyone behind.”
The Trump 2020 campaign has adopted a different approach and believes many Americans will be more likely to vote early if they refer to a list of early voting stations.
“Early voting is underway in the great states of Georgia and Texas,” President Donald Trump said on Twitter. “Find out where to early vote by clicking below.”
The president also believes word of mouth will be very effective in encouraging all eligible Americans to vote in-person at local polling stations.
“For years you had a [Democratic] president who apologized for America—now you have a president who is standing up for America, and standing up for Pennsylvania,” he said on Twitter. “So get your friends, get your family, get your neighbors, and get out and vote.”
The Oval Office previously estimated real cost of doing postal voting is at least seven times higher than the Democratic Party’s suggested $3.5 billion, making conventional voting at polling stations much more cost-effective.
“[It will cost] $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in,” the president told Fox Business. “There is nothing wrong with getting out and voting. They voted during World War One and Two, and they should have voter ID because the Democrats scammed the system.”
