Talking points

  • Every election, millions of American cannot cast a ballot because they do not know how to register or missed their local registration deadlines. National Voter Registration Day was created to combat this and make sure the American political process leaves no one behind.
  • National Voter Registration Day is the largest one-day effort of the year to register voters. It falls on the fourth (4th) Tuesday of September. This year, National Voter Registration Day is September 25, 2018.
  • Countless number of state and federal elections will take place in November. This underscores the need to get registered now.
  • Registering to vote is easy. You can start the process online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org  
  • We encourage every Mpowerment Project to get involved!
