Michelle Obama says she's 'sick of the chaos' of U S politics

Michelle Obama Officiates Chicago Wedding

Obama reminded listeners not to be fooled into thinking not voting is making a big statement. "Democracy continues with or without you". 'Folks who are voting know the impact'. "We experienced that. But we had a great president", she said, referring to her husband, former President Barack Obama.

'Those sheriffs that we elect they decide how are streets are policed, ' Mrs Obama said Sunday. To register to vote, go to Florida's online registration website.

"We get the leaders we vote for".

People interested in attending the rally can go to the When We All Vote website. "And when we don't vote, that's when we wind up with government of, by and for other people", Obama told about 2,000 people inside a high school gymnasium.

Obama's appearance at the University of Miami's Watsco Center is part of a national tour by the organization When We All Vote, which she co-chairs. The organization promotes participation regardless of political affiliation.

She hasn't overtly supported any Democratic candidates this year, but her husband has made appearances in California and OH to support his party.

Voters this November will decide a number of consequential races, including governor, USA senator and a dozen constitutional amendments that could see most ex-felons given the right to vote and greyhound racing banned in the state, among other things.


Former First lady Michelle Obama launched a campaign to encourage people to vote, telling a crowd of supporters in Las Vegas Sunday (September 23), "Believe me, I am frustrated too".

'Stop this, ' she laughed in response.

Actor and comedian Keegan-Michael Key came closest to delivering a partisan message, telling the crowd that America is at "a very, very interesting time".

Other speakers included actress Kelly McCreary of ABC's Grey's Anatomy; actress Lana Parrilla of ABC's Once Upon a Time; journalist Maria Elena Salinas; and local first-time voters.

Other speakers at Sunday's event did not mention partisan politics.

The tour will cover 10 cities and kick off in Chicago on November 13, the day of the books release.

The wedding photographer shared a stunning shot of the newly married couple on her Instagram page, but photos of FLOTUS at the event seem to be pretty scarce.
