Michelle Obama has been making many virtual appearances this year, one of her most recent being her powerful Democratic National Convention (DNC) speech in August. The next time you see her on your computer screen, she could be directly talking to you. This national voting campaign, "When We All Vote," encourages voters to get 10 of their friends to register to vote. Once you've done that, you are entered for a chance to win a hangout with the former first lady.

Besides the fact that it would be pretty cool to meet Michelle Obama (albeit virtually), it would also be pretty great to be privy to some of the unplugged thoughts she's been sharing in the midst of this election. This time around, Obama is no longer the first lady, and with vehicles such as her book tour, her podcast, and now commencement speeches and a DNC address, she's pretty much telling Americans exactly what's on her mind when it comes to Donald Trump and the state of the country.
"So let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can," she said in her DNC speech. "Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is."
As Doreen St. Félix wrote for The New Yorker, this call of action from Obama was "unmatched by any establishment Democrat during this campaign."
If you want more to hear more from Obama—this time in person—signing up for this voting campaign seems like a good way to get the chance.
