September 25 is National Voter Registration Day!

Voter Registration Day

Demonstrate your love of democracy – VOTE!

The midterm elections are coming in November and every voice needs to be heard. Whatever you believe, whoever you support, it is your right and responsibility as a citizen to vote! The Library has Voter Registration Forms available at the Adult Reference Desk. Stop in and pick up yours if you are not yet registered.

A. Time to celebrate our democratic heritage.

National Voter Registration Day has volunteers out en masse with voter registration activities at school, in the workplace, and in your neighborhoods. For one whole day, volunteers and various organizations collaborate by setting up registration tables, knocking on doors or producing social and mass media awareness campaigns over the importance of registering to vote. National Voter Registration Day makes an all-out effort to register the tens of thousands of Americans who can make a difference at the ballot box.

B. Don't hate—celebrate

National Voter Registration Day discourages political voter rage in favor of voter celebration. Imagine over 10,000 volunteers working together one full day to educate Americans on one of our most precious rights — the right to vote. In 2016, 750,000 voters registered on National Voter Registration Day. With so many world citizens denied this basic right, promoting our core democratic values, voting, should give all Americans something to cheer about on National Voter Registration Day.

C. It educates Americans on voting rights

National Voter Registration Day reminds and educates American on the voter requirements. You must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and a current resident of your state. When you see a National Voter Registration Day table or volunteer, you can do more than just register. You can confirm your polling place, and update your registration information.
