League of Women Voters Solano County to register voters at Solano Mall
On September 19, 2023, a coalition of thousands of partners across the country will celebrate National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) with a coordinated democracy blitz aimed at getting every eligible American registered to vote in advance of local elections and next year’s presidential primaries.
League of Women Voters Solano County (LWVSC) is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner. On September 19, they invite all non-registered voters to stop by the LWVSC table at the Solano Health Hub in Solano Mall between 11 am and 3 pm to register. Please bring a California Driver’s License/ID card and social security number to fill out the form. Members will be there to help if there are questions about registration status and provide information on voting and future issues.
First organized in 2012, NVRD is the nation’s largest, nonpartisan civic holiday dedicated to celebrating our democracy by registering to vote as many eligible Americans as possible. Since that first 2012 celebration, the holiday has helped more than 5 million Americans register to vote through the collective efforts of thousands of volunteers, nonprofit organizations, businesses, schools, libraries, election officials, and friends just like you from all over the country. Thousands of national, state, and local organizations and volunteers will be the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day 2023.
With this year’s holiday being the last National Voter Registration Day before voters in all 50 states, D.C., and U.S. territories head to the polls for the presidential primaries, there’s no time like the present to get every eligible American registered to vote.
The civic holiday’s website, NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org, provides a listing of National Voter Registration Day events across the country. It also includes comprehensive and state-specific resources on all things voter registration and voting more generally.
