On September 27, 2016, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) with a massive effort to register voters before Election Day this November.
With a historic presidential election approaching, every eligible American voter should exercise his or her right to be heard at the ballot box this November, and National Voter Registration Day is the right place to start by getting registered.
That is why communities across the country are planning to use National Voter Registration Day to increase voter participation.
Thousands of national, state and local organizations and volunteers will be the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day 2016. Partner Organizations will coordinate hundreds of NVRD events nationwide and leverage #VoterRegistrationDay in all social media platforms to drive attention to voter registration and the elections.
Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. (JLA) is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner. On September 27, JLA will engage its constituency and community to register voters at the following events:
