NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION DAY
Celebrated on the fourth Tuesday of September, National Voter Registration Day
will be taking place on September 22, 2020.
National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy.
First observed in 2012, it has quickly gained momentum ever since. Nearly 3 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday to date.
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.
National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote.
On Tuesday September 22, 2020 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.
