Tom Hanks joined former first lady Michelle Obama in a virtual event on Monday to push for mail-in voting in the upcoming November elections.

The virtual event was organized by When We All Vote, a self-identified bipartisan organization led by former Obama administration officials.

Ex-Obama administration officials on the group’s board include Valerie Jarrett, a former White House senior adviser, Tina Tchen, a former chief of staff to Michelle Obama, and Kyle Lierman, a former policy adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement.

Michelle Obama, the main speaker for the virtual “couch party,” said she wanted to make sure “every single American can cast their vote and make their voice heard in this upcoming election.”

She pointed to the Wisconsin primaries, which were held earlier this month despite the coronavirus pandemic. Pictures from one of the five polling places in Milwaukee showed mask-wearing residents waiting in long lines to vote, CNN reported.

“I don’t think you need me to tell you that this work is more urgent than ever before,” Obama told viewers by phone.

“No one should have to choose between casting their ballot and keeping themselves and their families and their communities safe.”

I think this mail-in voting thing is going to happen whether Trump and his merry band of assholes want it or not. 

Risking people’s lives in order to hold an election is simply unreasonable, and since we have the technology to do this thing and do it right there is literally no excuse. 

I mean other than that it does not allow for voter intimidation or voter suppression that is.
