(PoliticalLookout.com)- Former first lady Michelle Obama appeared in a video published on Twitter this week with pop star Jennifer Lopez to encourage people to vote. It formed part of the “When We All Vote” initiative that encourages people to vote by mail, despite the many problems seen with the hastily-implemented vote-by-mail system.
“Voting Don’t Cost a Thing – except a small amount of time,” the When We All Vote Twitter account wrote. It was surrounded by musical notes, suggesting it was a parody of the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” that Jennifer Lopez once sang.
No, I haven’t heard of it either.

This is precisely the kind of tactic the Democrats used in 2016 when celebrities mobilized behind failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. But, despite the overwhelming majority of publicly political celebrities supporting the Democrats, President Donald Trump still won in an electoral college landslide.
Michelle Obama laughs and tells people to take a packed lunch if they plan to vote in person, saying the lines will be long. Both also encourage people to vote by mail.
It is a tactic pushed by the Democrats since the outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus, and one that has proven problematic. Since ballots began being mailed out by various state authorities, there have been several instances of votes being discarded, of people being mailed the wrong ballots and ballot paperwork, and even people attempting to vote multiple times.
In September, an investigation found seven ballots cast for President Donald Trump discarded.
Last week, federal prosecutors also announced that a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service was charged for allegedly discarding mail, including almost 100 election ballots.
Do you believe the Democrats when they say voting by mail is safe?
