What happened on National Voter Registration Day?
National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) was on September 22, 2015. This day is important because it brings together volunteers, organizations, and celebrities from around the country to make sure that no one is left out in the next election. One major reason behind NVRD was the 2008 election where 6 million Americans did not vote because they missed the registration deadline or did not know how to register.
Check out what some of our campuses did for NVRD!
Allegany College or Maryland had volunteers at their campus to help students register to vote.
