Quoted @BarackObama

My memoir, A Promised Land, is out today. I hope you’ll read it. My goal was to give you some insight into the events and people that shaped me during the early years of my presidency. Most of all, I hope it inspires you to see yourself playing a role in shaping a better world.

I’m so proud of Barack for this candid, reflective, and beautifully written memoir. I can't wait for you all to read it! ❤️ #APromisedLand

So excited to see Kim Ng named the first woman and first Asian-American General Manager in the MLB. I grew up loving the Cubs, but I’ll be cheering you on!

A huge congrats to Sydney Barber, who will be the first Black woman to lead Midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy. Your hard work—and the powerful example you set—are such an inspiration. I’m so proud of you!

While working on Joining Forces, @DrBiden and I were honored to meet with our extraordinary troops, veterans and military families. This Veterans Day, take a moment to thank a military service member or veteran for their service and sacrifice to our country.

"While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last—because every little girl watching sees that this is a country of possibilities."

This weekend, @KamalaHarris made history. Today, girls all around the world can dream bigger as they aspire to lead.

Van, thank you for expressing the sorrow and relief that we all feel. My hope is that those who hoped for a different outcome will take a moment to empathize with the pain so many of us have felt over the past four years.

My warmest congratulations again to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug—and each of you who stepped up when your country needed you.

We’ve got to promise each other that our focus in this election won’t be an anomaly, but the rule. That’s how we can not only feel this way right now, but in the months and years ahead. It’s the only way we’ll build a nation worthy of our children.

So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, to keep speaking out and marching on. We’ve got to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia—and every state and local election going forward.

We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted. Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot.

 37,923  782  3,508

Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us.

 77,331  14,885  8,425

And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one.

 81,256  791  10,233

But we’ve also got to recognize that the path to progress will always be uphill. We’ll always have to scrape and crawl up toward that mountaintop. And two years from now, four years from now, there will once again be no margin for error.

 34,358  468  2,853

I’m beyond thrilled that my friend @JoeBiden and our first Black and Indian-American woman Vice President, @KamalaHarris, are headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House. Our country sorely needs it.

Thank you to all of you who poured every ounce of your hope and determination into this democracy over these past four years, registering voters, getting them to the polls, keeping folks informed. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. It’s because of you.

Quoted @JavonteA

Here's the first person in line to vote in the United Center.

She was registered to vote on the South Side, but she received mixed signals about where to vote. So, she woke up at 4 a.m., got her an iced coffee from Dunkin, and voted where she heard "any and everyone" could.

I see you, Chicago! Don't let anything get in your way of voting today. Check-in with your friends and loved ones and find your polling place at .

So I’m currently in line to vote absentee. The woman behind me says she just got out the hospital after having her 3rd heart attack this year.

She needs a chair and they give her one she needs to carry with her.

Use your voice and look out for one another today – we're all in this together. ❤️

TODAY is Election Day. There are no do overs. Show up, have your voice heard, and vote.

Quoted @WhenWeAllVote

Think you can’t vote because you aren’t registered?

In many states, you can still register TODAY and cast your ballot (all at your polling place ).

Is there someone in your life who you think might not vote? Call them right now and get them to the polls!
