'You've got...' Obama

Washington (CNN) – President Obama is reaching out to an audience potentially as large as 15 million to get voters to the polls through AOL.com on Tuesday.

"Hi, this is Barack Obama. You've got a chance to change your community and your country" the President says in the "You've Got..." segment released on AOL.com as he emphasizes the importance of voting to viewers.

"If you are thinking of sitting this one out, consider this. When you don't vote you leave the decisions that affect your life up to someone else. But when you do vote you shape the decisions that affect not only your own life but the lives or your children and grandchildren. Just like those previous generations did for us. So on Election Day go vote." Obama said.

"You've Got..." is a new feature rolled out Monday by AOL as part of its next generation made for web video platform.

Obama also pushed his 'get out the vote' message in taped interviews Monday with radio Ryan Seacrest, Russ Parr and Steve Harvey to air on their radio shows Tuesday. He also appeared live on Michael Baisden's radio show, as well as local radio shows in Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Miami, and Honolulu.
