Next Tuesday, September 25, is National Voter Registration Day
In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. In 2012, resources to educate and mobilize voters have dwindled, fueling worries that many folks - especially young people - won’t turn out.
We want to make sure no one is left out, so we’ve partnered with volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country who are hitting the streets on September 25.
If you’re not registered, or need to renew your registration, check out www.tumblr.com/meetups to find an event near you.
If you’re already registered - or if there’s no event near you - organize your own NVRD meetup at www.tumblr.com/meetups/organize. We’ll send you everything you need!
