It’s the most wonderful time of the year: National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday, Sept. 28 – and so we’re celebrating our most cherished American right and joining in the annual national push to get Americans registered.
First observed nine years ago, National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. Millions upon millions of voters have registered to vote on this annual holiday, with millions more confirming or updating their registrations.
This year, volunteers and organizations from all over the country will spend a single day conducting field, technology, and media efforts. That includes Civic Nebraska, the Cornhusker State’s pre-eminent voting rights organization. Join our Voting Rights Initiatives team at 6 pm Sept. 28 on Facebook Live – we’ll discuss Nebraska’s specific processes, talk about how voters can motivate others to get registered, and share some quick steps to ensure everyone’s registration is current and up to date.
National Voter Registration Day seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise. That means educating Nebraskans and Americans about how to register, sign up for election reminders, request mail-in ballots, learn about early voting options, and more.
According to the 2020 census, as many as one in four eligible Americans aren’t registered to vote. And every year, millions of Americans are unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register.
National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity. It’s an opportunity to set aside differences, enjoy the rights and opportunities we all share as Americans, and celebrate our democracy. So let’s get registered, encourage and help others to do so as well, and let’s all participate proudly in our democracy!
