“The First Lady will remind voters and grassroots supporters about what’s at stake in this election, encourage them to register to vote, and thank them for their hard work to help re-elect President Obama in November,” reads the announcement from the campaign.

Her appearance will be at VFW Post 1503, 14631 Minnieville Rd. in Dale City. Doors will open at noon.
     Tickets will be available to the public for free on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday at three Organizing America Field offices in Northern Virginia. See below for the office locations.

The first lady accompanied the president to Richmond early last month when he kicked off his reelection campaign.

In 2008, Barack Obama became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry Virginia in 44 years, and most recent polls show him with a slight edge over Republican Mitt Romney to win Virginia’s 13 electoral votes.

Tickets to see Michelle Obama will be available at the following locations:

— Tacketts Mill Shopping Center

2243-C Old Bridge Road

Woodbridge, VA 22192

-- 11215 Lee Highway

Fairfax, VA 22030

— Loehman’s Plaza

7285 Arlington Blvd

West Falls Church, VA 22042
