National Voter Registration Day
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 everyone has the opportunity to vote. On September 25, 2012, organizations across the country will participate in National Voter Registration Day to contact and register tens of thousands of voters who would not otherwise be reached about this year's election.
Your nonprofit can tap into this special day by
signing on as a partner to organize a voter registration activity or spread the word about National Voter Registration Day and voter registration.
It's a great one-day opportunity for any nonprofit to help register their staff, community, and the people they serve.
Nonprofits who sign up will receive a National Voter Registration Day toolkit and support for conducting voter registration on the 25th.
Be part of a nationwide network of local organizations committed to registering their clients and their communities on September 25th!
National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan event supported by the League of Women Voters, Nonprofit VOTE, Voto Latino, Rock the Vote, Tumblr, and a growing list of nonprofit and civic partners across the country.
