CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) - First Lady Michelle Obama was back in Ohio Tuesday campaigning in Cincinnati.
She urged the crowd to cast their votes early and help her husband win our key swing state.
"Because as Barack has said, this election will be closer than the last one, like right here in Ohio, right here," said Mrs. Obama.
The General Election is just five weeks away, but November 6th is really just the last day to vote.
The Obama campaign says it has registered several thousand people to vote in the past several months.
Most polls show President Obama leading Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Ohio by a spread of 1 to 10 percentage points.
Ohio's vote director says they've canvassed a lot of ground over the last year and many people welcome the convenience of early voting.
"I think the camp out set the tone for excitement for early voting. The First Lady is going to carry that momentum, letting people know that today starts the election and every day they need to get out and talk to their neighbors. They need to go vote. They need to register to vote until October 9th to bring this thing home for the president," said Ashley Allison, Obama Campaign staffer.
The Obama campaign handed out pink leaflets to those attending Tuesday's event, encouraging them to cast their ballot on the very same day as the First Lady's visit.
