The city will be hosting a National Voter Registration Day 2017 event at City Hall, located at 425 South Mission Drive, as part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.
The goal for the 2017 National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation by encouraging Americans to register to vote and come out to the polls during elections.
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 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.
