Twitter Web App : If you're in a state where you have the option to vote early, do that now. The more votes in early, the less likely you're going to see a last minute crunch, both at polling places and in states where mail-in ballots are permitted. Then tell everyone you know.

Twitter Web App : Everyone depends on the USPS. Seniors for their Social Security, veterans for their prescriptions, small businesses trying to keep their doors open. They can't be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.

iPhone : We are in a battle for the soul of this nation. But together, its a battle we can win.

Joe Biden—Im ready to get to work.

Twitter Web App : I’ve known Senator Kamala Harris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.

Twitter Web App : I will never forget the commitment to reconciliation and peace that I encountered in Hiroshima in 2016. The memory of August 6, 1945, must never fade; it allows us to fight complacency. It fuels our moral imagination. It allows us to change. obama.org/updates/75th-a…

Twitter Web App : We have to treat voting as the most important action we can take on behalf of democracy. So make sure you are registered to vote. Request a mail-in ballot early and send it back early. Then get your family and friends to do it, too. Every vote counts. iwillvote.com

Twitter Web App : Let’s guarantee that every citizen has equal representation in our government. And end partisan gerrymandering, so that all voters have the power to choose their politicians. And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster—a Jim Crow relic––then that’s what we should do.

Twitter Web App : We can do this by making sure every American is automatically registered to vote, including formerly incarcerated people. Let’s also make sure to add more polling places, expand early voting, and make Election Day a national holiday.

Twitter Web App : We've got to fight harder to protect the right to vote. It’s one of the most powerful tools we have––and we can start by passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Once we pass that, we should continue marching forward to make it even better.

Twitter Web App : Today is the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act––one of the crowning achievements of our democracy. But once the Supreme Court weakened it, some state legislatures unleashed a flood of laws designed specifically to make voting harder, especially in communities of color.

Twitter Web App : I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly qualified Democrats. If you’re in one of their districts or states, make sure you vote for them this fall. And if you can, vote early—by mail or in person. medium.com/@BarackObama/f…

Twitter Media Studio : This pandemic is far from over––and our medical professionals continue to put their lives on the line to keep our country going. Joe Biden and I had a chance to thank Dr. Craig Spencer MD MPH for his work during the Ebola crisis and this current pandemic.

Twitter Web App : John believed that in all of us, there exists the capacity for great courage and a longing to do what’s right. We are so lucky to have had him show us the way. I offered some thoughts today on his life and how, like him, we can give it all we have. obama.medium.com/my-eulogy-for-…

iPhone : John spent his entire life fighting for justice and equality––and now he has left behind his marching orders for all of us.

Twitter Web App : Michelle and I have spent a lot of time together these past few months. We’ve had a lot of good talks—and this one’s up there with the best. Take a listen to the very first episode of Michelle’s podcast: spoti.fi/MichelleObamaP….

iPhone : Its National Vote By Mail Day. Voting by mail is easy and safe. Take a few minutes to request your vote-by-mail ballot, then get your family and friends to do the same. Request your ballot early, send it back early, and fill it out carefully. Get started: votesaveamerica.com/everylastvote/

iPhone : Arianna’s a supporter of our campaign who’s been organizing food drives for her community during the COVID crisis. My team told me about her work, so Barack Obama and I decided to surprise her with a call.

iPhone : We're 100 days away from Election Day and there is too much at stake to sit this one out. Now's a good time to make sure you're registered to vote––and to make sure your friends and family are, too. iwillvote.com
