Civic Engagement and Voter Empowerment

This year National Voter Registration Day is on Tuesday, September 28, 2021. National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. Nearly 4.5 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday to date. According to the U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote and seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.
