Washington, DC: Today, 100 days from the midterm elections, When We All Vote released a video message from Co-Chair and Founder Michelle Obama calling on all Americans to get registered and ready to vote, and to take action with When We All Vote.

It’s official—we are just 100 days out from the 2022 midterm elections.
All that work you’ve been doing, all the outreach, the voter registration parties, the efforts to fight voter suppression, that work is more important than ever.
Because every American deserves to have their voice heard. Every American deserves to have a say in the future of this country.
And this fall, so much is on the ballot: our access to health care, the judges in our courts, and so, so much more
And if you want to make sure that your voice is heard, I need your help.
First, I want you to text VOTE to 56005 to check your voter registration status.
Second, I want you to ask one friend, just one friend, to check their registration status too.
And third, I want to ask you to volunteer with us. You can sign up right now at WhenWeAllVote.org.
It’s people like you who’ll make all the difference this fall. Whether that’s by casting a ballot yourself or by organizing your communities to make sure that all your neighbors can do the same.
So I hope you’ll join us. We’ve only got 100 days left, and they’re gonna go fast.
That’s why we’ve got to use every minute we’ve got until those polls close to make sure that everyone understands the importance of their voice, and the power of their vote.
Thanks again, everybody. Now, let’s get to work!
