National Voter Registration Day

Three Reasons to Celebrate National Voter Registration Day

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The League of Women Voters is celebrating National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 25 because:

• Registering and voting is the best way for each of us to decide what happens in our country. Health care. Education. The environment. Immigration. Drawing districts fairly. Our place in the world. It all comes down to the people we elect. Eager to make a difference? Start by becoming a loud and proud supporter of voter registration!

• The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties registers voters at many events during each year. Add that to the efforts of other Leagues across the United States and it means that from coast to coast, more people can participate in the decision making and many people hear our message that voter registration is important.

• Join LWV and help us with voter registration. And, even if you can't help, you can help publicize in social media, encourage people you know to get registered or update their address, and spread the word.

Resources include our League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties Election Central pages with links to county and state voter registration information here, the National Voter Registration Day web site here, and the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties individualized November ballot information for voters starting October 9 on our Vote411 web site here.


Did you know? You can register to vote or change your address online 24/7 by going to the Colorado Secretary of State's web site here. It's easy and only takes a couple of minutes.
