Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of National Voter Registration Day by Getting Every Eligible American Registered and #VoteReady
Every year, millions of eligible voters are unable to cast a ballot because of a missed registration deadline, outdated registration information, or other problems with their voter registration.
With nearly 4.7 million voters registered since 2012, National Voter Registration Day and the diverse and dedicated nationwide coalition of partners have shown that celebrating democracy and growing our democracy go hand-in-hand. The civic holiday hopes its 2022 iteration will mean a lifetime total of 5.5 million plus registered voters to set the tone for their next decade. But even if we fall short, we believe every single newly registered voter strengthens our
democracy by orders of magnitude.
According to 2020 post-election U.S. Census data, as many as one in four eligible voters in the country were not registered or weren’t sure. For groups already underrepresented in the electorate such as youth and communities of color, the numbers were even more stark; with less than 60% of potential voters aged 18-24 reported being registered to vote, and registration rates in communities of color lagging significantly behind the general electorate as well.
By joining in on the 10th anniversary of this nonpartisan celebration of democracy, we hope that Americans of every stripe across the country take advantage of the opportunity that is #NationalVoterRegistrationDay to get themselves and their communities registered to vote and ready to cast a ballot.
Join us as we register voters at Hagerstown Community College!
We will be registering voters outside (weather permitting) during HCC Fall Welcome Lunch.
Please arrive by 10:00 AM and park in Lot P and plan to chat with young voters about their experiences with elections!
The League and our voter registration efforts are always nonpartisan.
We welcome all to the effort!
