A Day for Democracy
National Voter Registration Day
September 25, 2018
Organized by Nonprofit Vote, National Voter Registration Day is a national holiday celebrating our democracy. Held on the fourth Tuesday of September, National Voter Registration Day will be observed on Tuesday, September 25th this year. 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. The goal of National Voter Registration Day is to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote.
The Alliance for Youth Organizing and Young Invincibles
The Alliance for Youth Organizing and Young Invincibles joined forces to co-lead the Campus Takeover program for National Voter Registration Day because we believe that our democracy is stronger when more people participate in it - especially students. We envision “Campus Takeover” to not just include a takeover of each individual campus, but a takeover of hundreds of campuses across the country. This large endeavor requires the teamwork and unique experiences of both our organizations. In partnership, we hope to share and make accessible our collective knowledge, resources, experience, strategies, and plans, to contribute to the most successful National Voter Registration Day ever!
