As Election Day got underway across the United States, former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Barack Obama spoke out to Americans via Twitter. Throughout the campaign, the Obamas have vocally advocated for the campaign of Democratic nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Former President Barack Obama has made a slew of in-person campaign appearances for Biden, while Michelle has worked through means like leading her voter outreach organization, which is called When We All Vote and aims to increase voter turnout and engagement with the electoral process on the part of Americans. On Tuesday morning, Michelle called on Americans to vote “for the future you want to see for our country” and support Joe Biden.

Michelle said the following:

‘I know Joe. He has lived his life guided by values and principles that mirror ones that most Americans can recognize. He understands the struggles of everyday folks. Vote today for the future you want to see for our country. Vote for [Joe Biden].’

Could the stakes be higher? Four more years with Donald Trump in office means four more years with vitriol running the show at the White House. Trump has defined his time in office with hatred and antagonism of marginalized communities. One of his closing arguments has even been to rant and rave against low-income housing, which he has claimed would “invade” the suburbs if Democrats win the White House. Low-income housing, of course, is often associated with marginalized communities like low-income black Americans, and the debacle over low-income housing is one of many times when marginalized communities have borne the brunt of the president’s vitriol.

On his own Twitter account, Barack shared a Tuesday morning message calling on Americans to “get out there and vote today.” His message included a video clip of the former president making personal outreach calls to voters. Turnout surged across the U.S. before Election Day even got underway — Texas, Hawaii, Nevada, Washington, and Arizona all passed 2016 turnout levels before Election Day even arrived!

Obama shared the following message:

‘More than 100 million Americans have already cast a ballot in this election. Joel, Monica, and Andrés are three of them — and I got to FaceTime with them before they voted. Join them and get out there and vote today.’
