National Voter Registration Day 2021
First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan holiday that involves thousands of organizations and volunteers working together to ensure their family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote and ready to cast a ballot. Voting is a shared American freedom, but to exercise this basic right, we must be registered to vote! That’s why the Student Civic Engagement Office and the Panther’s Vote Coalition is a proud partner and supporter of National Voter Registration Day. And you can be part of this amazing day, too!
Register to Vote Online: It’s simple, it’s free, and it’s secure. If online voter registration is not available in your state or if it doesn’t work for you, you can easily start the process online no matter where you live. Once you make sure you’re registered, SPREAD THE WORD! Ask a friend to join you and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay and #VoteReady in all of your social media posts.
Thanks for taking a few moments to strengthen your community – and our country – with your voice!!
Make a STATEment, VOTE!
Georgia State University has made it easy for students, faculty and staff to register to vote. When there is an election in your area, you will be sent a reminder to ensure you never miss another election. TurboVote is an application that makes voting easy. When you sign up, TurboVote keeps track of your elections, local and national. And if you need to get registered, update your voter registration, or request an absentee ballot, we’ll get you all the forms and information you need, when you need them.
TurboVote keeps track of registration and vote-by-mail rules for all 50 states, so you don’t have to.
