LULAC Celebrates National Voter Registration Day: September 22, 2015
September 22, 2015
Today is National Voter Registration Day and LULAC is proud to once again help raise awareness on the importance of voting and how you can register to vote.
In 2008, 6 million Americans did not cast a ballot because they either missed the registration deadline or did not have the necessary information to vote. This year, in order to make sure everyone votes, LULAC will be conducting voter registration drives through a coordinated field effort taking place in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and states in the southwest. In addition, with the help of LULAC’s Young Adult Councils, registration drives will also be conducted in Texas.
Every thirty seconds a Latino turns 18 years old and helps to make the Latino community play a decisive role in campaigns – but only when we register to vote and vote. For more information on how you can register to vote, please visit www.LULAC.org. Also, please use the hashtag #CelebrateNVRD! and help bring awareness. You can also see my message regarding the importance of voting.
