Former first lady Michelle Obama is launching a new voter registration initiative in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections.
The not-for-profit nonpartisan When We All Vote campaign has recruited Hollywood heavy-hitters like Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Janelle Monae, basketballer Chris Paul and country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw to spread the word.
"It's up to each and every one of us to make sure our government doesn't just represent a small some — not just the most powerful — but all of us," Hanks said in a statement.
When We All Vote hopes to raise voter participation this November. In 2014, just 36.4% of the electorate voted during midterms (the lowest rate in 70 years).
