Imagine January 20th, when we swear in a President and Vice President who have a plan to get us out of this mess; who believe in science and have a plan to protect this planet for our kids; who care about working Americans and have a plan to help you start getting ahead; who believe in racial equality and are willing to do the work to bring us closer an America where no matter what we look like, where we come from, who we love, or how much money we’ve got, we can make it if we try. All of that is possible. All of that is within our reach. If we pour all our effort into these last five days and vote up and down the ticket like never before, then we will elect @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. And we will leave no doubt about who we are and what this country stands for. Let's go.
Making stuff up doesn’t make people’s lives better. You’ve got to have a plan. You’ve got to put in the work. And along with the experience to get things done, @JoeBiden has concrete plans and policies that will turn our vision of a better, fairer, stronger country into a reality.
I just voted by mail for @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. If you're planning on doing the same, follow all the instructions carefully, and drop it in the mail or at a ballot drop box right away. And there’s a lot more on the ballot than voting for president. If you want more information about all the candidates and measures that’ll be on your ballot, this is a good place to start: votesave.us/obama
I am asking you to believe in Joe’s ability, and Kamala’s ability, to lead this country out of these dark times and help us build back better. We can’t just imagine a better future; we’ve got to fight for it. We’ve got to outhustle the other side. We’ve got to vote like never before and leave no doubt. Make a plan right now for how you’re going to get involved and vote. Do it as early as you can and tell your family and friends how they can vote, too. Don’t stop with Joe and Kamala – make sure you vote all the way down the ticket. And if we pour all our effort into these 13 days; if we vote up and down the ticket like never before; then we will elect @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. And we will leave no doubt about what this country we love stands for. iwillvote.com
One of the most inspiring things about this year has been seeing so many young people organizing, marching, and fighting for change. Your generation can be the one that creates a more just, more fair America, where the system treats everybody equally and gives everybody opportunity. I know there’s plenty out there to make people feel cynical. And plenty of people are going to seize on that to try to convince you that your vote doesn’t matter. Don’t let them. Because your vote matters more than ever before. And to change the game on any of the issues we care about, we've got to vote for @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Go to iwillvote.com/obama to make your plan, then get some friends to join you. Let’s go.
During my eight years in the White House, I might have spent more time with @PeteSouza than with anybody other than my family. Pete was always there to document the best and most challenging days of my presidency, from high-stakes meetings with world leaders to quiet mornings reading briefings in the Oval Office. Over time, and after more than a few games of cards, he became a friend, a confidante, a brother. His documentary @thewayiseeitfilm gives you an inside look at my presidency and his career as a White House photographer. I hope it shows you why it’s important to vote for a leader like @JoeBiden.

Back when @JoeBiden and I were campaigning, we would take time to talk to folks in every city and hear their stories. By the time I finished talking to everybody, I would turn around and see that Joe was only a third of the way through the line. He was still telling somebody a story or listening intently as they shared their own story. That’s the Joe I know. He knows what it means to see the world through somebody else's eyes and stand in their shoes. And it’s one of the many reasons why I know he’ll make a great President.
