Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, September 28, 2021.
On Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 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.
According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they:
- aren’t sure how to register
- miss a registration deadline
- kept forgetting
- didn’t have time
- did not update their registration
- recently moved or
- changed their names
A full 60% of potential voters aged 18-24 are not registered.
All elections matter.Local leaders play a key role in making decisions about what impacts voters and their families most. It is up to us to vote in large numbers so that we can hold our elected officials accountable and have the best government at all levels. From property taxes and potholes, skateboards on sidewalks, and school funding, most of the issues that affect your daily life are decided at the local level.
Now, more than ever, people of all ages need elected officials that represent their views on school boards, city and town councils, or county boards. These elected officials can make change happen or not.
Now is the time to get Vote-Ready!
