More than 700 groups in all 50 states work online and on the ground in non--‐partisan effort to register voters.
On September 25, 2012, tens of thousands of voters will celebrate the inauguration of a new holiday - National Voter Registration Day - in a massive effort to register voters in all 50 states before Election Day.
The theme for National Voter Registration Day is simple: Register in September, make it count in November. The overarching goal of the project is to drive voter registration and civic engagement.
National Voter Registration Day’s impact will be driven by partner organizations that are stepping up to play an important role in their communities by driving attention and action around voter registration, and to make this civic duty part of an everyday conversation.
Partners include major technology companies, retailers, voter registration and activation groups, and non-profits from across issue areas including the YWCA, Tumblr, Patagonia, the League of Women Voters, US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Univision and over 700 other national and local organizations!
The effort’s website, NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org, provides resources for partners and grassroots supporters to gear up for the big day, including ways to sign up as a partner, an online voter registration tool and toolkit ; posters and promotional materials; and event listings that promote National Voter Registration Day events across the country.
National Voter Registration Day counts partners across the political spectrum, and as a non-partisan event, is providing an outlet for Americans from all backgrounds and interests to come together to support our democratic infrastructure - exercising the right to vote by making sure voters are registered.
The Altadena Library District is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner, and will be strengthening and serving our community at the following event:
