The National Association of Secretaries of State has officially declared September 25th, 2012 National Voter Registration Day! Read the full release.
The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) is a nonpartisan professional organization for state officials and its members include the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and American Samoa. NASS facilitates the exchange of information between states and fosters cooperation in the development of public policy–including voting and election initiatives.
This declaration, coming from a leading bi-partisan organization of state elections leaders, further reinforces the importance of registering and voting in 2012.
On September 25, nonprofits and volunteers across the country will engage their communities to help register or re-register thousands of voters ahead of various deadlines. National Voter Registration Day is a great one-day activity that any nonprofit can leverage to help their community register and vote.
Your organization can still sign on to participate in National Voter Registration Day. In order to receive a hard-copy toolkit, be sure to register before September 1st.
