Democrats are turning to what many of them believe is their secret weapon to attempt to get out the vote in 2022: former first lady Michelle Obama.

As The Hill reports:

It’s more than a year away, but Michelle Obama is already looking ahead to the midterm elections next November, lining up a star-studded group of supporters with the aim of mobilizing voters ahead of 2022.

The former first lady’s voter registration and engagement organization, When We All Vote, announced a series of celebrity-filled events on Tuesday.

Among the big names joining the effort — dubbed the #BacktotheBallotBox week of action — are NBA star Chris Paul, “Scary Movie” actor Regina Hall and radio host Angela Yee.

The events, which kick off on Thursday with a virtual rally featuring Obama, are part of a push by When We All Vote to “call on its volunteers, supporters and student ambassadors to host voter registration drives in their local communities, sign up to register voters in high-traffic areas and call on the Senate to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.”

Will Obama help the Democrats turn the tide in 2022? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
