Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day
BENTON CO., Wash. — Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, a day dedicated to “create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities.”
It’s held on the fourth Tuesday of September each year and was first observed in 2012.
According to the National Voter Registration Day website, 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.
On Tuesday, volunteers and organizations around the country will “hit the streets” in a single day of coordinated efforts, hoping to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.
In 2018, over 800,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states.
