National Voter Registration Day
The 4th Tuesday of September is National Voter Registration Day, observed annually by state election officials around the country. On September 22, 2020, we celebrate democracy by expanding the number of people who are registered to vote.
Every year millions of Americans can't vote because they missed a registration deadline, didn’t update their registration, or weren’t sure how to register. 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.
Since 2012, nearly 3 million voters have registered on National Voter Registration Day.
Do YOU know someone who isn't registered to vote? I bet you do. Reach out to that person today and help them register. In some states, it's easy - in others, it's complicated. Either way, National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone is registered and has the opportunity to vote.
In Michigan, voters promoted the vote in 2018 and cleared away as many obstacles as they could to registration. You can register online - it only takes a few minutes. Or you can register by mail or in-person at your clerk's office, or automatically when you get your driver's license. And you can register any time, even on Election Day. Michigan's voters can find all of the info they need at the Michigan Secretary of State's website.
You're not in Michigan? Use the National Voter Registration Day website to find your way to register in your state to vote.
Be part of the action. Be a voter. REGISTER today!
