VCU's voter registration drive

First lady Michelle Obama will campaign Tuesday in Northern Virginia, urging young people to get registered before next week's deadline.

Olivia Munn, the actress from shows like The Newsroom, Magic Mike and The Daily Show," came to Richmond Sunday afternoon to help campaign.

She spent time here meeting would-be voters and taking pictures.

Munn said her help was requested by the President, himself.

"When you have the president of the United States and someone that you believe in asks you to help, and you know you have the capability to do it, you drop everything and you do it," said Munn.

The deadline to register to vote is October 15th.
