Library to register voters to celebrate holiday


TROY — On Sept. 22, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) with a massive 50-state effort to register voters before Election Day this November.

In light of national elections, the theme for this year’s National Voter Registration Day is “Celebrating Democracy in America.” With a historic presidential election approaching next year, every eligible American voter should exercise his or her right to be heard at the ballot box next year, and National Voter Registration Day is the right place to start by getting registered.

That is why communities across the country are planning to use National Voter Registration Day to increase voter participation. The Troy-Miami County Public Library will engage its constituency and community and register voters between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The effort’s website, www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org, provides a listing of National Voter Registration Day events across the country.

Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right—the right to vote. More than 356,000 Americans have been registered to vote since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day.
