#WhyIVote: Join Babble and Michelle Obama on Pinterest!

#WhyIVote — Join Babble and The First Lady on Pinterest

Want to connect with the First Lady online? Now’s your chance!

All you need to do is create a Pinterest board on what inspires you to vote, whether it’s to protect the environment, tackle the debt, preserve citizen freedoms, support healthcare initiatives, or ensure a better education for your children. Whatever your reasons, and whatever party or candidate you support, we want to know what’s motivating you to be heard on Election Day. (Not registered to vote yet? Gottavote.com makes it easy for you!)

To participate, just follow the steps below and start pinning! Make sure you explain each pin with a caption about why you vote — “to set an example for my kids,” “because I love my country” — and include the hashtag #WhyIVote.

Post before Sunday, October 21, and Michelle Obama will personally select her favorite pins and repin them to her own board.

Selected participants will be notified via email on October 23rd.

Happy pinning—and be sure to follow Michelle Obama and Babble on Pinterest to keep up with the conversation!

The purpose of these collaborations is to promote civic engagement and provoke conversation around the presidential election; Babble welcomes open participation and discussion of personal and political beliefs. Babble is not affiliated with nor does it endorse a specific political party or campaign. Both the Romney team and the Obama team were invited to work with Babble.
