For residents of many states, you can register right from your computer! Just click the “Register to Vote” tab on the National Voter Registration Day website, and fill in your information as the site takes you step-by-step through this super easy process.
If you’re already registered, there’s more you can do! Go to http://nationalvoterregistrationday.org/ and click on the “Promote” tab. There, you will find a variety of neat ways to tell other people to register. You can either change your profile picture and status on Facebook with a National Voter Registration Day logo, send an e-mail, Tweet about it (you can even tweet to your favorite celebrities straight from the site), or share any of the graphics provided on the site through any media you choose.
Think you have all the time in the world to register? Think again- in the 2008 election, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they either missed the registration deadline, or didn’t know how. That’s why National Voter Registration Day is employing thousands of organizations, volunteers, and social media outlets to get the word out about registration. Because no matter who you are voting for, it’s so important that you do. Exercise your right as an American to have a voice in your government. Register today! It’s not too late!
