National Voter Registration Day – September 24

Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

Will the GOP try to suppress this too? National Voter Registration Day 2013:

LogoIn 2008, 6 million Americans didn't vote because they missed a
registration deadline or didn't know how to register. In 2013, we want
to make sure no one is left out.

On September 24, 2013, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations
from all over the country will "hit the streets" for National Voter
Registration Day. This single day of coordinated field, technology and
media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration
opportunities–allowing us to reach tens of thousands of voters or more
who we could not reach otherwise.

What It Means

• Volunteers at transportation hubs, retail stores, sporting, and concerts.

• Technology to help eligible voters find registration drives nearby.

• A network of grassroots, local organizations engaged in their own communities.

• Tens of thousands of voters registering to vote online and offline in a single day.

What It Will Accomplish

• Register Voters: A network of a thousand organizations operating on
the ground and through social media will register tens of thousands of
voters in the field and tens of thousands more online–while also
receiving pledges to vote from the already registered.

• Mobilize Volunteers: By engaging nonprofits not usually engaged in
voter registration drives and amplifying existing drives through
event-based recruitment and cultural outreach, National Voter
Registration Day will bring thousands of additional volunteer voter
registrars into the field just when we need them most.

• Educate Eligible Voters: Millions of voters need to register and
re-register every year. By utilizing new technology and leveraging
cultural partners, we'll educate more Americans than ever before,
bringing new voters into the fold.

• Change the Conversation: National Voter Registration Day will be an
opportunity to put our differences aside and celebrate the rights that
unite us as Americans.

National Voter Registration Day has been made possible in part by a
working group of organizations providing coordination and support. These
organizations include, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance Education
Fund, Bus Federation Civic Fund, Fair Elections Legal Network, League of
Women Voters, Nonprofit Vote, and Voto Latino. Please go to contact
form with any questions or more information.
