Michelle Obama and DJ D-Nice want you to get out the vote – by staying in. Starting at 6:30 p.m. ET tonight, in partnership with When We All Vote, Obama and DJ D-Nice are hosting a virtual #CouchParty to help register eligible voters. While DJ D-Nice spins, you can learn how to register voters from the comfort of your couch.
“As the country’s reality continues to change in the wake of the coronavirus’ ongoing impact on individuals and communities, When We All Vote is committed to exploring innovative and safe ways to reach voters where they are – at home,” When We All Vote said in a statement.
And as our reality changes, people are finding more ways to spread joy and connect while staying home. DJ D-Nice started Club Quarantine to bring people together and show them a good time while social distancing. So far, over 200,000 people have joined his Homeschool at Club Quarantine on Instagram Live, including Obama, Halle Berry, Rihanna, and Kerry Washington.
More than 3,000 #CouchParty volunteers have signed up to help text eligible voters, and When We All Vote has a goal to text 50,000 eligible voters through this effort.
