New & Improved VOTE411 has everything voters need ahead of 2020
WASHINGTON – Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day (NVRD), a holiday established in 2012 to celebrate democracy and register hundreds of thousands of voters annually. The League of Women Voters, the largest on-the-ground NVRD partner organization for the eighth year in a row, will host more than 500 voter registration events in local communities tomorrow.
“In 2018 we reached ten million voters, and with such a pivotal election on the horizon, we want to make sure the public has everything they need to participate in 2020,” said Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters board of directors. “Don’t let a registration deadline prevent you from casting your ballot. You can get started right now and make sure your registration is up to date on VOTE411.”
The League of Women Voters Education Fund powers VOTE411.org, the newly redesigned election information site where voters can find everything they need to vote, starting with registration, seeing what is on their ballot, checking their polling place, voting hours, and much more.
“Voters are just months away from casting the first ballots in the 2020 elections,” said Virginia Kase, CEO of the League of Women Voters. “Now is the time to make sure your voter registration is up to date and the League will be hosting events around the country to help voters prepare for next year’s critical election cycle.”
Thousands of organizations, companies, and celebrities will hit the ground in communities around the country to register tens of thousands of new voters on one single day.
“The League of Women Voters will celebrate its 100th Anniversary next year,” said Jeanette Senecal, senior director of mission impact for the League. “The best birthday gift we can imagine is that all voters check their voter registration status and encourage friends and families to do the same.”
