Have a Voice: National Voter Registration Day

Local News

A special occasion arises every fourth Tuesday in September–National Voter Registration Day.

This volunteer-driven effort has been going on since 2012. That is because every year, millions of Americans are unable to vote due to missing registration deadlines.
You can register or update voter registration throughout northeast Wisconsin.

For starters, in Sturgeon Bay you have events at the Library (5-6:30pm), Door County Community Center (11-1pm), and NWTC (11-1:30pm).

Green Bay has an event at the Brown County Central Library (9-6pm), and Appleton has a registration pit-stop at the Partnership Community Health Center (9am).
You can also get a nudge in the right direction at Oshkosh North High School (7:30-1pm) on the west side of the school at door seven.

Keep in mind: the deadline to register online or through mail is right around the corner–October 17th.

If you miss that, it has all got to be done in person at the municipal clerk’s office or the polls on Election Day.

Another FYI–you will need a Wisconsin ID to use Wisconsin’s online voter registration system.

You can get started on the right path at myvote.wi.gov and learn more about NVRD (and its events) here.

And National Voter Registration Day has a track record of success.
In 2016 alone, more than 750,000 Americans registered on this day.
