The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2017 state and municipal elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box.

While national elections get the media attention, local elections in many ways have a more direct impact on people’s lives, including the quality of roads and transit systems, schools, parks and greenways, public safety and more.

Since its founding in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has grown into a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.

As a nonpartisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum. Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote.

Americans can also register to vote online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org.
