GARY -

President Barack Obama will Sunday appear in Gary for a "Get Out The Vote" rally. The event is part of a flurry of activity in advance of Tuesday's midterm election that includes President Donald Trump in Indianapolis Friday and Fort Wayne Monday.

Doors for the event are scheduled to open at 12:00 p.m. CT at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary. Tickets will be available at the locations listed below beginning Thursday morning and those unable to make it to those sites can request alternative ticket pickup by clicking here.

"It’s an honor to invite President Obama back to Indiana to fire up thousands of Hoosiers and get them out to vote early, knock doors, and elect Democrats up and down the ticket this coming Tuesday," Indiana Democratic Party Chair John Zody said in a news release. "President Obama is a reminder of the positive change each and every one of us can make if we work together to move our country forward, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him get out the vote less than two days before a crucial midterm election."

This will be Obama's first visit to Indiana since 2016, when he visited Elkhart to talk about economic growth in the city and throughout the country. Sunday's rally will come between two visits to Indiana by President Donald Trump, who is scheduled to hold a rally Friday at Southport High School in Indianapolis with Vice President Mike Pence, as well as a rally Monday at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne.
