As the November presidential election draws near, Michelle Obama has a very important message for voters: it only takes one.

In a new message posted on YouTube Thursday, FLOTUS is encouraging civic-minded citizens -- folks that already vote regularly and campaign for their candidates of choice -- to get family and friends involved as well.

"That one new voter you register in your precinct. That one neighbor you help get to the polls November 6. That could make all the difference," Obama says in the video. "That one conversation you have. That one volunteer you recruit. That could be the difference between waking up on November 7 and feeling the promise of four more years or asking yourself, 'Could I have done more?'"

Adds the Obama campaign's "Rally-er in Chief", "As Barack has said all along, 'It takes one voice to change a room. And one room to change a community. And one community to change the direction of our nation.' It takes one and it starts with you."
