@PeteSouza  was always there to document every moment of my presidency, from high-stakes meetings with world leaders to quiet mornings reading briefing memos. The @WayISeeItFilm  is one to watch—and a reminder to get registered and make a plan to vote.

From police reform to funding our schools, the officials with the most power to change the issues we care about in our communities are often found at the state and local levels. So educate yourselves up and down the ticket, make a plan to vote, and vote:

Bob Bauer and @jacklgoldsmith 's new book is a thoughtful and comprehensive look at the issues at stake as we debate the role of the presidency in the coming years. It's worth a read.

One of the most inspiring things about this year has been seeing so many young people organizing, marching, and fighting for change. And to change the game on any of the issues we care about, we've got to vote for @JoeBiden  and @KamalaHarris .

Participate and vote. It’s not always pretty – trust me, I know. But it’s how, bit by bit, we’ve made progress over generations. Go to to make your plan, then get some friends to join you. Let’s go.

102 never looked better! Grateful for all the folks like your great aunt who continue to show up and vote in this important election.

13 days until the most important election of our lifetimes. And you don’t have to wait until November 3rd to cast your ballot. Make a plan, vote, and then help your friends and family make a plan at . Let’s do this.

Great to be back in Philly today. I'm fired up and ready to go!

I just voted by mail for @JoeBiden  and @KamalaHarris . If you're planning on doing the same, follow all the instructions carefully, and drop it in the mail or at a ballot drop box right away. Here, I’ll show you:

Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama ! Happy birthday, baby!

I wrote out some thoughts on how to make this moment a real turning point to bring about real change––and pulled together some resources to help young activists sustain the momentum by channeling their energy into concrete action.

"People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love..."

Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We've been waiting for you. And we've got your backs.

Thinking about our neighbors in Mexico and all our Mexican-American friends tonight. Cuidense mucho y un fuerte abrazo para todos.
