The former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama has launched a nonprofit registration initiative, When We All Vote, to encourage citizens to vote in the upcoming midterm elections. At the first rally, which took place in Las Vegas on September 23, she made a powerful speech in front of 2,600 attendees. “Believe me, I am frustrated too,” she said. “I am sick of all the chaos and messiness of our politics. It’s exhausting, and frankly it’s depressing […] but democracy continues with or without you.”
