We at OTYCD are re-running this post that appeared earlier in September 2020 because today is National Voter Registration Day.
Support National Voter Registration Day, which takes place this year on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
If you’re not registered, you can’t vote. And you know from using the OTYCD guide to talking to friends and family about voting Trump out in 2020 that voter registration deadlines start hitting in early October.
National Voter Registration Day has been a thing since 2012. Since then, nearly three million Americans have registered to vote thanks to NVRD efforts, with more than one million of those registering between 2018 and 2019.
The NVRD movement takes on extra importance in 2020. One of the reasons Trump won was due to who didn’t vote.
Two out of five people who were eligible to vote in 2016–40 percent!–failed to cast a ballot.
If a fraction of those nonvoters make their voices heard in 2020, Joe Biden could win in a landslide.
Please check out the information below about National Voter Registration Day. If you’re already registered, or there aren’t any events in your area, please spread the word on social media in the days leading up to September 22.
