Help Us Educate Students about the Voting Process
National Voter Registration Day will be celebrated at University of Mary Washington on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, in coordination with a national effort to increase voter registration. National Voter Registration Day is a national tradition celebrating our democracy.
Every year, millions of Americans are unable to vote because of a missed registration deadline or other problems with their registration. Recognizing this challenge, National Voter Registration Day was created in 2012 as a single day of coordinated media and field events to help eligible voters get registered, or update their registration, ahead of state deadlines.
In 2019, UMW celebrated National Voter Registration Day with an event on Ball Circle that included information tables, voter registration, free pizza, and other activities.
