Michelle Obama seeks volunteers for local campaigns: There are 'no off years'

Michelle Obama issued a recruiting call for volunteers across the country on Friday, urging Americans to organize behind local and municipal election candidates and stressing in an email that there is no such thing as an "off year" in U.S. politics.

In an email on behalf of her nonpartisan voter initiative When We All Vote, Obama urged activists to remember the high levels of voter turnout in the 2018 midterms.

"Remember how inspired we felt four months ago? How more Americans than ever before participated in a midterm election? How young people turned out to vote in record numbers, and how so many Americans cast their ballot for the first time in their lives?" Obama asked.

"It's time to do it again in 2019. There are no 'off' years when it comes to being a voter," the former first lady continued. "I've always said that voting isn't just about presidential elections -- it's about every election at every level."
