TODAY: National Voter Registration Day
Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
Today is National Voter Registration Day. What is it exactly, you might ask?
In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. In 2012, we want to make sure no one is left out.
On September 25, 2012, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated ﬁeld, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities–allowing us to reach tens of thousands of voters or more who we could not reach otherwise.
Of course, once you’re registered, in far too many state you’ll have a hell of a time actually getting out to vote. But this is a great step in the right direction and we’re proud to be a partner in this effort.
