[ARCHIVED] National Voter Registration Day

The East Greenwich Board of Canvassers will hold a Voter Registration Drive on National Voter Registration Day 2017.

 

At 8:30 AM Tuesday, September 26, 2017, The Town of East Greenwich will join over 2,500 partners nationwide in hosting a National Voter Registration Day 2017 event at the East Greenwich Town Clerk’s Office as part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.

 

WHEN: 

National Voter Registration Day

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

 

WHERE: 

East Greenwich Town Hall Clerk’s Office

125 Main Street

East Greenwich, RI 02818

 

WHY: 

The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in state and municipal elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box. While national elections get the media attention, local elections in many ways have a more direct impact on people’s lives, including the quality of roads and transit systems, the schools our kids attend, parks and greenways, public safety, and more.  Since its founding in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has grown into a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.


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 to vote 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 26 by searching #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
