National Voter Registration Day:
Tuesday, September 22
Tuesday, September 22nd is National Voter Registration Day. If you or someone you know is not yet registered to vote, now is the perfect time to change that! Find a registration event near you by checking out the official National Voter Registration Day event page at: NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org/events.
In 2008, six million Americans didnâ€™t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didnâ€™t know how to register. In 2015, we want to make sure no one is left out.
On September 22, 2015, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will â€œhit the streetsâ€ for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated ï¬eld, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunitiesâ€“allowing organizers to reach tens of thousands of voters who they could not reach otherwise.
National Voter Registration Day was first started for the 2012 presidential election. It has now become an annual holiday and celebration when thousands of people ensure our family, friends and neighbors are registered to vote. You can visit www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org to register to vote, and to find ways to get involved and help #CelebrateNVRD!
