Former President Barack Obama is urging Americans to register to vote and carry through with casting their ballots on Election Day.

His comments came in a video on his Twitter account for National Voter Registration Day.

“What’s at stake in this election is much bigger than Joe (Biden) or the man he’s running to replace,” Obama said. “What’s at stake is whether or not our democracy endures. And the folks in power are hoping that you will stay home.

“They’re hoping you get cynical. They’re trying to convince you that your vote doesn’t matter. It’s how they win. Don’t let them. Make a plan for how and when you are going to vote.”

He urged people to go to iwillvote.com to get registered.

“And if you can, vote early, in-person or by mail," Obama said. "Now’s the time to safeguard this democracy and fight for what we believe in. And all you’ve got to do is make sure your voice is heard.”
