National Council of Jewish Women Chicago North Shore is excited to participate in a national effort to engage and mobilize Americans in our political process by helping to register over a hundred thousand voters across the country on September 26, 2017, National Voter Registration Day.
First held in 2012 for that year’s presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday where thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.
Have you moved — even just across town — since the last election? Have you changed your name? Will you turn 18 by Election Day? Are you a newly naturalized citizen? Have you not voted in a while?
In all of these cases you may need to register or update your voter registration in order to make your voice heard at the ballot box this November. Click here to register to vote and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word!
Why register in 2017? States, cities, counties and towns across the country have big elections this fall. Primaries for next year’s state and national elections are just a few months away. National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.
Once you’re registered to vote, there are other ways you can join us in getting involved:
- Click here to find a National Voter Registration Day event near you and sign up to help your friends and neighbors register.
- Step up to host your own local event with your family, friends, and neighbors to make sure everyone you know is registered.
Voting is our collective opportunity to express ourselves as a community, as voters and as Americans. Take a few seconds to make sure your voter registration is up to date. Visit nationalvoterregistrationday.org, and join us in celebrating National Voter Registration Day 2017 on September 26!
