Today is National Voter Registration Day (NVRD), the day for eligible Americans everywhere to register to vote! Voting is our chance to stand up for our families and communities by letting politicians know what matters to us. Voting is our duty and responsibility as citizens. With Election Day, November 4, just around the corner, now is the time for all of us to get ready to participate and to help our friends and family get ready too!
The League of Women Voters is celebrating National Voter Registration Day because registering to vote is the key way to ensure that you can engage in our country's political process. We come from all walks of life, and we vote for lots of different reasons. But today, all Americans deserve the chance to stand up for what matters most to them. And the best way to do that is to register and vote.
