I’m Registered To Vote, Are You?
National Voter Registration Day is was first observed in 2012 and has been growing in popularity every year since. Held on the fourth Tuesday of September, this year it will be on Tuesday, September 24th.
Are you registered to vote? (it takes 30 seconds) You can check to see you whether you are at Vote.org. If not you can do it online here at USA.gov. (Citizens living overseas and military voters should visit Overseas Voting Foundation.) Now, that you know how easy it is, ask your friends and family if they are registered.
Also, have you considered helping out and registering others? On National Voter Registration Day, volunteers and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” in a single day in a single coordinated effort. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register.
The first step to getting people to the polls is making sure they are registered voters. If you want to be one of the volunteers out there to help others with their Voter Registration, here’s how you can do it. Election Day is six weeks and we want EVERYONE to vote!

Also, you can find National Voter Registration Day Events that have already been organized by going to their website. Just plug in your zip code to find the ones nearest to you.
But tomorrow is not the only day to register voters. Even though there are different voter registration deadlines by state (and, you can find them here at HeadCount) you can and should keep going. The organizations above not only provide volunteer opportunities but training, too. And, if you want to organize your own Voter Registration Drive, here’s a best-practices and training guide by Rock The Vote.
