Michelle: You Don’t Have to ‘Know Nothing About Nothing’ to Vote

Michelle Obama encouraged people who “know nothing about nothing” to get out and vote while speaking at a campaign-style rally on Monday in Las Vegas.

“Voting does not require any kind of special expertise,” Obama told the crowd. “You know what you need to be qualified to vote?” the former First Lady asked. “You need to have opinions about the issues in your community — that’s what qualifies you to vote.”

“I’ve been voting since I was 18 years old — and trust me I didn’t know nothing about nothing at 18 years old — right?” she said. “But what you do know is what you care about,” she said. “You do have opinions about what goes on — that qualifies you to vote.”
