President Obama will grant an interview to “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday as part of the administration’s last-minute Election Day plea for folks to vote.

The interview segment will air on Seacrest’s radio show, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” at 7:15 a.m. PST and will be immediately available afterwards at RyanSeacrest.com.

In a Facebook post, Seacrest put out a solicitation for questions:

Do YOU have a question for President Obama? What issues concern you most? Let us know in the comments below and Ryan might ask it in the interview!

Tonight, the president plans to make phone calls to boost the morale of activists and other party organizers in key battleground states, including Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and his native Hawaii.
