Ben Harper & Obama College Student Rally Tomorrow. Watch Live.
Ben Harper will appear with President Obama at the University of Wisconsin's Madison campus tomorrow (Tues) to encourage young people to vote on Nov 2.
This rally, the first in a series of college campus rallies Obama has scheduled in order to get young people who voted for him in 2008 to the polls this Nov 2, is free and open to the public. Gates open @ 4:30pm EST, and event is scheduled to begin @ 5:45pm EST. But the live stream won't begin until 6:30pm EST - you can watch here. VP Biden, Members of the Cabinet, and DNC Chairman Tim Kaine are holding events at other college campuses on Tues, and 100+ campuses are holding watch parties. Find one near you here.
Tomorrow's event will last several hours. If you're near Wisc & want to attend in person, then Ben has all of the details up on his website here.
Ben Harper has also partnered with HeadCount to encourage music fans to get out to vote on Nov 2. Check out the PSA featuring Ben:

For more info about Obama's message for young people check out the transcript of the conference call that he held earlier today with college journalists, here.
Note: I couldn't find any specific info about the rest of Obama's college tour, but I hope that he comes out to the San Francisco Bay Area:) Michelle Obama will be touring California at the end of October, though, to support Democratic women who are running for re-election! Michelle's tour will also include stops in New York, Chicago, Denver, Seattle and Milwaukee.
