Reminder: National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 24
Date Posted: 9/24/2019 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
Today is National Voter Registration Day (NVRD).
Recognized each year on the fourth Tuesday of September, this is a great day for educating students about the voter registration process and reminding your friends and family members about the importance of being registered. We at ATPE encourage you to use the hashtag #NationalVoterRegistrationDay in your social media posts to help us spread the word today.
As a reminder, Oct. 7 is the deadline to register to vote in this November's election, where several proposed constitutional amendments will be on the ballot for Texas voters.
Find additional tips for educators participating in NVRD today here, courtesy of the Texas Educators Vote coalition of which ATPE is a member.
