TDC Adopts National Voter Registration Day as a Special Day of Action
The Democracy Commitment adopts National Voter Registration Day as a Special Day of Action. According to the coalition, in 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. In 2016, the movement wants to make sure no one is left out. On September 27, 2016, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). This single day of coordinated ﬁeld, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities–allowing us to reach tens of thousands of voters who we could not reach otherwise. National Voter Registration Day is an opportunity to put our differences aside and celebrate the rights that unite us as Americans; democracy.
TDC encourages all member institutions to join the national network of a thousand organizations operating on the ground and through social media to register voters on their campuses and communities while also receiving pledges to vote from those already registered.
