On Thursday, Michelle Obama took to Twitter to announce her "Voting Squad," a group of people meant to hold each other accountable to vote — and make sure friends, relatives, and neighbors are registered and prepared to do the same.

Obama's squad includes Selena Gomez, Liza Koshy, Shonda Rhimes, Megan Rapinoe, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, Faith Hill, Janelle Monáe, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Chris Paul.

Along with Obama, the people on her squad are also the co-chairs of the nonpartisan voter participation organization behind the initiative, When We All Vote.

In the tweet, Obama encouraged others to join their efforts on When We All Vote's website. You can also find information here on how to create your own squad, and how to apply to be a "Voting Squad Captain," volunteers that commit to monthly training phone calls and participate in get-out-the-vote actions in their communities.
