Washington: U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama is encouraging supporters to reach out to the 'knuckleheads' in their life and ask them to vote for President Barack Obama.
Speaking in Delaware, Ohio, the First Lady encouraged people to 'cast their net wide' when it comes to reminding potential supporters to vote.
"Talk to everyone you know-your friends, your neighbors, that cousin you haven't seen in a while, that student sitting next to you in class. You know he's kind of a knucklehead," She said, adding: "You know the one".
"Tap him on the shoulder. Be nice. Don't call him a knucklehead. Not to his face. You just want to encourage him to get to the polls," she said.
"But tell him what's at stake," Politico quoted Michelle, as saying.
According to the report, she also explained that the Obama campaign had buses waiting to bring supporters directly from her rally to the polls.
"We have a bus that is going to take any of you here who wants to go straight to the board of elections to cast your ballot for Barack Obama," she said.
"I want you to get everyone you know to vote by mail or vote early in person, and if you know anyone who doesn't vote early, make sure they get to the polls and make their voices heard on election day," she said, adding: "That is our secret plan."
