Home Uncategorized Obama Voting This Afternoon in Chicago–First Sitting Pres to Vote Early!

Barack Obama just sent out this email to his Democratic followers. He’s voting this afternoon in Chicago. He’s the first president to do something like this.

“This afternoon, I’m casting my ballot in my hometown of Chicago. I’m told I’ll be the first sitting president to take advantage of early voting.

And I can’t wait.

I know I can count on your vote. Now, it’s on all of us to make sure our friends and family step up. Reach out to folks you know in important early vote states.

Look, this race is extremely tight. It’s going to come down to which side can more effectively turn out the vote in these final days, and early vote is a huge part of that.

Whether people get out to vote this year, in this election, is even more critical than the last time around.

So this is serious, and I’m going to need your help if we want to win.

Connect with your friends and urge them to vote early:

Thanks,

Barack”
