Obama: Here’s My Number, Text Me How You’re Voting

Roll Call reports:

Former President Obama shared his phone number on Twitter Wednesday, asking Americans to text him about how they are planning to vote. “All right, let’s try something new,” the former president tweeted.

“If you’re in the United States, send me a text at 773-365-9687 — I want to hear how you’re doing, what’s on your mind, and how you’re planning on voting this year.”

The former president’s message comes 41 days ahead of Election Day. The 2020 election is expected to set records for the number of people voting by mail as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
