September 25 is National Voter Registration Day 2018

 

The Rock Island County Chapter of the League of Women Voters plans multiple events to register voters in time for the November Election.

 

WHAT:  On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, The League of Women Voters will host National Voter Registration Day events at multiple locations as a part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.

 

WHY:  

The goal for the 2018 National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation by encouraging Americans to register to vote and come out to the polls this November.

 

“The Rock Island County Chapter of the League of Women Voters has partnered with various community foundations, educational institutions and organizations to host multiple events in the county.  One of our goals is to register more than 200 voters for the November election”, states organizer Kathleen Bailey.

 

As a nonpartisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum.  Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right–the right to vote.

 

Americans can register at hundreds of events across the nation and online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org.  Supporters can also follow National Voter Registration Day activities through social media on September 25 by searching #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
