National Voter Registration Day goals include:

  • Registering Voters: In 2016 over 750,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states.
  • Mobilizing Volunteers: Each year the holiday’s growing number of local partners engage upwards to 10,000 local volunteers.
  • Educating Voters: Millions of voters need to register and re-register every year. By utilizing new technology, Americans are educated in all 50 states about how to register, sign up for election reminders, check their registration online, get mail ballots, learn about early voting and more.
  • Uniting for a Common Purpose: National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity. It’s an opportunity to set aside differences and celebrate democracy and the rights and opportunities Americans share.

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. On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, volunteers and organizations from all over the country will coordinate technology and media efforts to remind citizens of deadlines to register. National Voter Registration Day is in an effort to create awareness of voter registration opportunities and to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.
