Today is National Voter Registration Day, a nationwide effort to register thousands of voters on one single day! Last year over 300,000 new voters were registered on National Voter Registration Day alone. And this year, we’re thrilled to announce that even more partners, including more League of Women Voters volunteer teams, are out registering voters in their communities.
Tonight is the first 2012 presidential debate, and the media has whipped itself into a frenzy over the latest poll numbers. The pre-Election rush has officially arrived. Here at the League, that means working overtime for these last critical days to make sure as many voters as possible are registered and ready to participate.
After visiting Leagues and elected officials in Colorado, I hopped a plane for a few quick days in Kansas City, Missouri. It was a pretty busy few days meeting with local election officials, League members, local media, and empowering high school students!
