Both former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and actress Chloë Grace Moretz will be making appearances at MSU this weekend. The events are organized by the Michigan Democratic Coordinated Campaign.

O’Malley will be holding a dialogue in the James Madison College Library from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, where he will discuss the election and his support of Clinton with students. Students may RSVP here with the Clinton campaign. This event will be hosted by MSU College Democrats

O’Malley ran opposite Clinton in the democratic primaries, but withdrew from the race

“It’s going to look more like a personal, intimate discussion with Gov. O’Malley,” MSU College Democrats president Daniel Eggerding said. “Gov. O’Malley wants to talk directly to students and with students and get our feedback to see what we want to see reflected in policy, in Hillary’s campaign and in the Democratic Party itself.”

Moretz will be leading a voter registration drive on Friday from 2:15 to 4:15 p.m. behind South Case Hall. Students may RSVP here. Eggerding said he hopes students who are familiar with Moretz will be able to meet her and learn why she supports Clinton and other democrats.

Moretz, star of movies such as "Kick-Ass" and "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," gave a speech at the Democratic National Convention declaring her support for Clinton.

“We’re approaching this voter registration deadline very quickly ... so these next two weeks are going to be very crucial in organizing voter registration drives,” Eggerding said. “A pretty big celebrity like that is going to hopefully bring a good turnout.”
