Not a Rhino is excited to support a national effort to engage and mobilize Americans in our political process by helping to register over a hundred thousand voters across the country on September 26, 2017, National Voter Registration Day.
First held in 2012 for that year’s presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday where thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.
Have you moved — even just across town — since the last election? Have you changed your name? Will you turn 18 by Election Day? Are you a newly naturalized citizen? Have you not voted in a while?
In all of these cases you may need to register or update your voter registration in order to make your voice heard at the ballot box this November. Register to vote and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word!
Why register in 2017? States, cities, counties and towns across the country have big elections this fall. Primaries for next year’s state and national elections are just a few months away. National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.
Once you’re registered to vote, there are other ways you can join us in getting involved:
Voting is our collective opportunity to express ourselves as a community, as voters and as Americans. Take a few seconds to make sure your voter registration is up to date by using Rock the Vote‘s tool on the bottom of our website, and join us in celebrating National Voter Registration Day 2017 on September 26!
Not a Rhino is an official 2017 partner of National Voter Registration Day. PLEASE register to vote (and vote) for November’s elections! Your voice matters, and should be heard.
