The Bill Memorial Library to Hold Voter Registration Drive on National Voter Registration Day 2018, in time for State and Federal Midterm Elections.
From 10:00 A.M. – 7:00 P.M. on, Tuesday, September 25, 2018, The Bill Memorial Library will join over 3,000 partners nationwide in hosting a National Voter Registration Day 2018 event at the Library as part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.
The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2018 midterm and state elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box. While presidential elections get the media attention, midterm elections are a chance for voters to not only impact how their state is run but how their state is represented in the Federal government. Since its founding in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has grown into a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.
