Happy National Voter Registration Day!
Today, for the fourth straight year, thousands of organizations across the country are celebrating National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) by registering tens of thousands of new voters.
Today is an important day for all of us to help voters get ready to head to the polls to weigh in on the issues that matter most to them. 2015 may not be a presidential election year, but there are thousands of important offices at stake across the country on November 3 – not to mention the upcoming presidential primaries in early 2016.
Help us get new voters ready to weigh in! Here are three simple steps YOU can take to help celebrate National Voter Registration Day:
And don’t forget, if you have moved or changed your name since the last time you registered to vote, you will likely need to update your voter registration information. Check your current registration status.
This year, the League of Women Voters is once again on track to be the largest on-the-ground participant with more than 260 local Leagues holding registration activities today. League volunteers will be out in force finding new voters at bike races, supermarkets, gyms and new citizen ceremonies. With each voter we register, the League is helping to get as many people participating as possible.
Voter registration is the key to ensuring that all Americans can engage in our political process. That is why the League is committed to National Voter Registration Day, and it is why League volunteers will be out in force today and right up until every state's registration deadlines passes, this year and every year.
Election Day 2015 is coming! Now is the time to remind the people in your life to visit VOTE411.org to register to vote, make sure that their voter registration record is up-to-date and learn about important voting rules and deadlines in their state. With your help, we’re Making Democracy Work®!
