National Voter Registration Day: Make Your Voice Heard

National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday held every year on September 19th. The goal of National Voter Registration Day is to encourage eligible Americans to register to vote and to make sure that their voter registration is up to date.

According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. This means that millions of people are missing out on their right to have a say in their government.

There are many reasons why people might not be registered to vote. Some people may not know how to register, while others may not think that their vote matters. Still others may face barriers to registration, such as lack of transportation or difficulty accessing the internet.

National Voter Registration Day is an opportunity to overcome these barriers and make sure that everyone has the opportunity to vote. On this day, there are voter registration drives and events held all over the country. These events are a great way to learn about the registration process and to get help registering to vote.

Even if you are already registered to vote, it is important to make sure that your registration is up to date. Your registration information may have changed since you last voted, such as your address or your name. It is also important to check the registration deadlines for upcoming elections.

Voting is one of the most important rights that we have as citizens. It is our way of making our voices heard and of shaping our democracy. National Voter Registration Day is a reminder of this important right and a call to action to make sure that everyone is registered to vote.

If you are not registered to vote, you can register online or by mail. You can also register at a voter registration drive or at your local election office. The deadline to register to vote varies from state to state, so be sure to check the deadlines for your state.

Once you are registered to vote, you can make sure that you are informed about the issues and the candidates by reading the news, attending candidate forums, and talking to your friends and neighbors. On Election Day, make sure to go to the polls and cast your vote.

Your vote matters. Make your voice heard on National Voter Registration Day and in every election.

Here are some ways to get involved in National Voter Registration Day:

  • Register to vote or update your voter registration.
  • Volunteer at a voter registration drive.
  • Donate to an organization that is working to register voters.
  • Spread the word about National Voter Registration Day on social media.
  • Talk to your friends and family about the importance of voting.

Together, we can make sure that everyone has the opportunity to vote and that our democracy is strong.
