National Voter Registration Day - September 22, 2020
In 2020, National Voter Registration Day broke new ground, registering over 1.5 million voters and paving the way for historic turnout in the November 3 election. This report celebrates the achievements of our nationwide coalition of partners, who collectively helped a record-setting number of voters gain a voice in our democracy on this year’s holiday.
Held during uniquely challenging times, including a global pandemic and national movements for racial justice, National Voter Registration Day in 2020 was powered by a coalition of nearly 5,000 partners of all stripes and sizes across the country. Election offices, nonprofits, companies and brands, digital platforms, libraries, campus and youth groups, and more were out in their communities this September 22–either through safe in-person events or virtual ones–to reaffirm that every voice matters, and every vote matters, and the COVID-19 pandemic would not stop their determination to keep our democracy strong.
