A close ally of Joe Biden comes to Detroit in three weeks for a political rally that isn't about him . . . directly, that is.
Michelle Obama visits the University of Detroit Mercy on March 27 in her role as a co-chair of When We All Vote, a two-year-old nonprofit group that encourages registration and voting -- for anyone.
"Millions of new voters made their voices heard for the first time" in 2018, she says in a one-minute video below. "Now, the stakes are even higher."
The free Detroit event is at Calihan Hall on the northwest Detroit campus, 4001 W. McNichols. Doors open at 4 p.m.
The nospartisan group's first 2020 rally is for the organization's volunteers, partners, educators, college students and teens who'll turn 18 by Nov. 3. Sign up here for tickets and updates.
An announcement posted Wednesday says: "When We All Vote will hold a contest to give away tickets to two people and their guests to meet Michelle Obama backstage at the event. The winners will also receive travel accommodations to Detroit. Members of the public can enter here."
When We All Vote organized 2,500 registration events around the country in 2018.
