Stickers and More on Sept. 28: National Voter Registration Day
Posted on: September 22, 2021
Almost 1 in 4 Americans are not registered to vote. Change that stat by registering this fall!
Register to vote at our National Voter Registration Day booth in Carrier on Tuesday, September 28, 11am to 2pm. We can also answer your questions about voting, whether it’s about where your polling place is, or what to bring on Election Day. (You’ll also get a sticker at our booth!)
Virginia has elections every year
…and the next election in Virginia is on November 2. If you’re a Virginia voter, you can vote early this fall at your local registrar after registering to vote or updating your registration!
We’re helping students get ready to vote
Some college students are new to voting, may think registering will be difficult, don’t know how to update their address, or may not yet see themselves as a voter, according to AAC&U. We aim to support Dukes Vote’s efforts to make it easy for JMU students to learn about voting by meeting them where they are (in this case, in the library lobby!).
Your voice matters on National Voter Registration Day (and every day)
Nearly 4.5 million voters have registered on National Voter Registration Day since 2012, including 1.5 million people last year alone. If you’re not registered to vote yet, here’s your chance!
Thanks to the James Madison Center for Civic Engagement and Dukes Vote for partnering with us on this!
