"The First Lady will participate in several regional satellite and radio interviews on Tuesday, in which she will encourage supporters to vote and to volunteer to help get out the vote in their communities," the campaign said.
The Vice President, Joe Biden and his wife Dr Jill Biden will vote in Wilmington, Delaware, before travelling to Chicago, where they will also participate in regional radio interviews.
