Michelle Obama to headline voting rally in Miami

MIAMI (AP) — Former First Lady Michelle Obama is heading to Miami along with some celebrity guests to encourage residents to vote in the upcoming November election.

Singers Faith Hill and Kelly Rowland and rapper Fat Joe will join her Friday at the University of Miami event that’s free to the public. Guests must have a ticket to attend.

According to the Miami Herald, attendees must pick up tickets in advance, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., at one of the following locations:

Obama recently launched When We All Vote, a national, nonpartisan not-for-profit organization saying she’s on a mission to change the culture around voting and increase participation in elections.

Obama recently told volunteers at an event that she’s not doing this to campaign for any candidate or tell anyone how to vote. Instead, she said she wants people to understand why every single vote matters and to make voting a priority no matter how busy they are.
