Michelle O’s Get Out the Vote Event in L.A. ‘Sparsely Attended’

Not even Selena Gomez’s star power at Michelle Obama‘s first-ever When We All Vote Culture of Democracy Summit in L.A. on Monday was enough to boost the tepid attendance at the event.

“This work is incredibly important to me, especially when I think about the people who sacrificed so we can all exercise our right to vote,” Gomez said as she introduced the former first lady who infamously once stated that she had never been proud of America until her husband got elected President.

“None of our work at When We All Vote would be possible without our founder, former first lady Michelle Obama,” Gomez said as Obama prepared to take the stage. “Our goal is to increase voter participation, especially among Black, brown, and young voters, and to change the culture around voting.”

“I want to implore every American who cares about our democracy not to just get angry or dejected. I want you to get active,” Michelle O. said during her address. “We’ve got to change the way we think about our democracy. And we’ve got to change the way we participate in it. Not just every two or four years, but as a routine part of the way we all live.”

We do have to change the way we participate in our democratic process. First and foremost, we have to end widespread Democrat voter fraud.

The Associated Press noted that the summit held in an L.A. soccer stadium was “sparsely attended.”
