Today Is National Voter Registration Day

VoterRegDayLogoNational Voter Registration Day is a National holiday celebrating our democracy.  It was first observed in 2012 and has grown in popularity every year.  Held on the fourth Tuesday of September, National Voter Registration Day is on September 24, 2019.  The purpose of National Voter Registration Day is to ensure everyone has the opportunity to vote.

Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote, because they miss a registration deadline, don't update their registration, or aren't sure how to register.

Today, volunteers and organizations from all over the Country will "hit the streets," in a single day of coordinated field, technology, and media efforts.  National Voter Registration Day seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities, to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.

What It Involves

  • Volunteers in the community or workplace, at schools, public events, or elsewhere are able to register people to vote.
  • Technology helps voters find registration drives nearby and register to vote online or on their cell phone.
  • Local organizations, businesses, and election offices engage in their communities.
  • Tens of thousands of voters register to vote online and offline in a single day.

What It Will Accomplish

  • Registering Voters:  In 2018 over 800,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states.
  • Mobilizing Volunteers:  Each year the holiday’s growing number of local partners engage upwards to 10,000 local volunteers.
  • Educating Voters:  Millions of voters need to register and re-register every year. By utilizing new technology and leveraging partners, we’ll educate Americans in all 50 states about how to register, sign up for election reminders, check their registration online, get mail ballots, learn about early voting and more.
  • Uniting for a Common Purpose:  National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity.  It’s an opportunity to set aside differences and celebrate democracy and the rights and opportunities we all share as Americans.
