Four score and seven years ago–oh wait, it was actually more like 2008–6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register.
Here at Chicago Votes, we’re working to change that by organizing what can only be described as the coolest of democracy holidays ever!!!
What is National Voter Registration Day?
On September 24, 2013, volunteers, celebrities and organizations from all over the country will hit the streets for National Voter Registration Day. It’s a day of people coming together to celebrate democracy by registering tons of new voters.
Sound like your type of party? Sign up and join us on National Voter Registration Day to help spread democracy!
Last year, Chicago Votes helped organized hundreds of volunteers and 30+ partner organizations across Illinois who registered more than 7,000 people to vote on this holiday. Thats right, we did it all in ONE day.
In 2013, we want to make sure no one is left out.
We need good samaritans and party people from across Chicago to join us and register thousands of new voters!
Sign up and say that you are committed to registering members of your community, friends and neighbors to vote.
