For Oprah, democracy is not a spectator sport. On September 22, National Voter Registration Day, Lady O posted a video on Instagram encouraging her followers to vote, while explaining what’s at stake in the 2020 presidential election.
“In a lifetime of interviewing people I learned that the most important question we can ask ourselves is ‘what do I want?'” said Oprah, at the start of the video. “That question is necessary for setting the vision for your personal life. It also is vital in the collective vision of our country. What do we want?”
Wearing a sweater with the word “Vote” emblazoned on it, O of O explained the power of voting in America. “Voting is a giant step in the direction of the collective vision we hold for our country,” she noted. “This 2020 election holds the highest stakes we’ve known for our democracy in our lifetime. Life as we know and hope for it to be is on the line, I believe.”
