On Tuesday President Barack Obama just visited the CU-Boulder campus. Now, it's the First Lady's turn to visit Colorado. On Monday April 30, Michelle Obama will be heading to Colorado Springs to speak with a select audience at a volunteer appreciation event.
But there's a catch. The president's speech was open to any member of the public who got a free ticket -- but to see the First Lady, you must sign up as a voter-registration volunteer on April 28 or 29 to be entered into a sweepstakes. And spaces are limited.
Here are the rules, as laid out in a press release from Carrie Doyle, the state director of the Colorado Obama/Biden campaign:
Sign up and complete one voter registration shift during the National Voter Registration Weekend of Action this weekend, and you'll be entered for a chance to attend the First Lady's event in Colorado Springs. We're giving away 10 tickets statewide and each ticket comes with a plus one."
Registering voters is simple, effective and critical to re-electing the President in November, and now that we have a clear opponent, it's time to step up and take action. Sign up for a shift today to join fellow supporters on Saturday, April 28th or Sunday, April 29th. We hope you'll be one of the lucky volunteers to join Michelle in Colorado Springs.
