Fmr. President Barack Obama is no stranger to the importance of the election. 4 years after he left 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, he is back campaigning for participation at the polls.
In a video with Now This, Obama shares how important the 2020 election truly is. He captioned, “you don’t need me to tell you what’s at stake in this election. Now is the time to show up and vote like never before to elect Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.”
The video highlights the election’s importance by discussing the realities of political tactics such as “gerrymandering”. It expands our ideas of simply picking the “right” President to picking the “right” local candidates as well. He details how our local elections play pivotal roles in election outcomes for years to come.
