President Obama posts message on Reddit urging users to vote before the polls close

President Obama AMA

President Obama is no stranger to Reddit — he hosted a brief "ask me anything" session back in August. Now, with just over two hours left until the polls close on the east coast, the president has jumped back on Reddit and posted a message urging users to get out there and vote, "whatever your political persuasion." For those that already voted, President Obama requested that users spread the word to friends and family — "think of it as upvoting," the president said. While it's highly likely that the president simply had one of his campaign staff type out the brief message, it's good to see he hasn't forgotten the denizens of the internet as his campaigning wraps up.
