Chelsea Clinton urges LGBT to vote: ‘This is the most consequential election of my lifetime’

Chelsea Clinton has been described as her 'mother's champion'

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Hillary Clinton, made an impassioned speech to LGBTI voters Saturday at a town hall in Charlotte, North Carolina.

‘In my heart, this is the most consequential election of my lifetime,’ she said, speaking at AvidXchange Music Factory, an events space.

During her speech she made a case for making well-informed decisions about local elections as well as the presidental election. ‘I’m constantly talking to people across our country about how important it is to vote up and down the ballot, and you understand that probably more than anyone else does at this moment in time.

‘So thank you for what you’re doing to make the case about why this election is the most important of our lifetime, while also recognizing that all elections really matter.’

She urged people to vote November 8, and conveyed her thanks to ‘all of you who have already voted for my mom.’
