National Voter Registration Day

Posted by National Voter Registration Day on September 25, 2017

National Voter Registration Day is September 26, 2017! Are YOU registered? Opportunity Youth United is proud to support this national effort, as we move forward with our mission to build power within low-income communities by increasing the number of registered voters.

What is National Voter Registration Day?

First started for the 2012 presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday where thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.

Why register in 2017, you may ask? Our answer: States, cities, counties and towns have big elections this fall. Primaries for next year’s state and national elections are months away. As a nonpartisan coalition of organizations, National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.

I invite you learn more about the national effort by clicking here and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word!
