National Voter Registration Day - Tuesday, September 24, 2019
National Voter Registration Day is a civic national holiday celebrating our democracy on the fourth Tuesday of September. It was first observed in 2012 and has been growing in popularity every year since. In 2018 over 800,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states. The League of Women Voters is happy to partner with this movement.
If you haven't voted in a while, you may not be #VoteReady! Update your voter registration. It takes just 2 minutes!
Do you need to register to vote? Have you moved since you last voted? (Forty percent of people don't know they need to update their voter registration after moving.) Are you turning 18 by Election Day? Make sure you're #VoteReady by registering to vote!
