DURHAM, N.C. — First Lady Michelle Obama plans to visit North Carolina on Wednesday for campaign events in Greenville and Durham.

WTVD reported she will speak at North Carolina Central University in the McLendon-McDougald Gymnasium at 1:40 p.m.

WTVD reports the event is free and open to the campus community. Tickets, which are required due to limited space, will be available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Tickets will be distributed to those with NCCU student IDs on Monday and Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the Alfonso Elder Student Union Building on the university’s campus.

The First Lady’s speech will reportedly focus on encouraging people to help organize their communities between now and November and promoting voter registration through GottaVote.com.

The First Lady will then speak at East Carolina University in Greenville in an event that is free and open to the public. Tickets are required.
