Michelle Obama Shows Off Her Absentee Ballot (PHOTO)

First Lady Michelle Obama is practicing what she preaches on the campaign trail.
On Monday, Mrs. Obama prepared and mailed her Illinois absentee ballot. She was photographed in the White House with the completed ballot all sealed and ready to go.
The image helps push the campaign’s idea that as many voters as possible need to take advantage of early voting. Both she and President Obama will cast their ballots in advance.
“In states around the country, voters can already vote early in person or by mail,” said the first lady in a campaign press release.
“It means you don’t have to worry about your schedule filling up, or getting sick, or having to work late on Election Day. And more than anything, it means you can act right now to move our country forward,” she added.
Something tells me that these early ballots will free up the Obamas to campaign in battleground states all the way to the final second on Election Day. Even on the day she cast her early ballot, Mrs. Obama had two campaign stops later in Ohio.
It’s not a game for Team Obama!
