With U.S. voters making their way to the polls before the final votes are cast, President Barack Obama took to Reddit ne more time to ask members of the social news site's community to cast their vote.

On Reddit, the president posted the following :

I want to thank you all again for the reception you gave me in August for my AMA. Good questions. Definitely not bad.

I'm checking in because polls will start closing in this election in just a few hours, and I need you to vote.

Millions of Americans have stepped up in support of this campaign over the last 19 months, and today we decide what the next four years look like — but only if we show up.

I ask that you go out there and cast your vote, whatever your political persuasion.

You can confirm your polling location here:


If you've voted already, don't stop there—spread the word to your friends, roommates, and neighbors. Think of it as upvoting.

Back in late August, Obama participated in an "Ask Me Anything" thread on Redditwhere he answered questions from members. His statement Tuesday was posted on the same thread.
