National Voter Registration Day

September 17, 2023

National Voter Registration Day brings Americans together over our mutual love of democracy — or so we hope. The day falls on the fourth Tuesday of September every year. If you’re already registered to vote, make sure your information is current with the registrar’s office.

National Voter Education Week

September 30 - October 4, 2024

National Voter Education Week (NVEW) helps voters bridge the gap between registering to vote and actually casting a ballot. During this week of interactive education, voters have the opportunity to find their polling location, understand their ballot, make a plan to vote in person or remotely, and more. NVEW strives to help voters overcome common barriers to become confident voters and ambassadors of voting in their own communities for every election.

Vote Early Day Logo

October 29, 2024

Most voters can cast their ballot prior to Election Day. Vote Early Day makes that process easier by helping all eligible voters understand their voting options while celebrating the act of voting early.
