Last week, volunteers, celebrities and organizations from all over the country united like never before to help make National Voter Registration Day a success! Together, over 800 organizations – including over 280 state and local Leagues in 43 states – came together to register thousands of new voters.
But the push for voter registration isn’t over. Many states have important elections this year, and voter registration deadlines take place in many states as early as next week!
This Election Day, Tuesday, November 5, millions of voters will head to the polls and stand up for what matters most to our communities and our lives. These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities and our future. They are about us. We all need to weigh in.
How do you register to vote and find out the deadline to register in your state?
- Visit VOTE411.org to find the voter registration deadline for your state and use the online voter registration tool to start the process of registering!
- Make sure you have printed, signed and dated your completed voter registration form.
- Stamp your form and put it in the mail to be sent to the state official’s address that was pre-filled on your form. (NOTE: If you don’t print out and mail in your form, you are not finished registering to vote.)
Once you’ve successfully registered, make sure you encourage your friends and family to do the same with our handy eCard! We’re all equal on Election Day, and every one of us has the chance to stand up for the issues that matter most to our families, our communities and our country. The first step to taking a stand is registering to vote.
Voter registration is the key to encouraging all Americans to participate in our nation's remarkable political process. Help make sure that the people in your life are registered and ready to vote in November! Take a moment today to ask your friends and family if their voter registration is up-to-date or if they need to register for the first time.
