Lewis University Civic Engagement Committee to Hold Voter Registration Drive

Published: September 18, 2017.

As part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters, Lewis University Civic Engagement will host a National Voter Registration Day 2017 event at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, September 26 in the Arts and Sciences Building on the main campus on Rt. 53 in Romeoville, joining over 2,500 partners nationwide in a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.

The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2017 state and municipal elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box.

As a nonpartisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum. Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote.

Americans can register to vote at hundreds of events across the nation and online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org. Supporters can also follow National Voter Registration Day activities through social media on September 26 by searching #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
