National Voter Registration Day is September 28, 2021

The League of Women Voters Of Greater Rockford is participating in the National Voter Registration Day on September 28.  There are 15 locations throughout the area where people can register to vote.  National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy.

The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford is excited to be part of a national effort to strengthen our democracy by registering voters on this year’s National Voter Registration Day, which will take place on September 28, 2021.

First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan holiday that involves thousands of organizations and volunteers working together to ensure their family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote and ready to cast a ballot. National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.

Today, we invite you to register to vote and learn more at NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay and #VoteReady on social media to spread the word!

Once you’re registered to vote, there are lots of other ways you can get involved:

• Join The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford at one of our National Voter Registration Day events, either in-person or online.

• Step up to host your own local in-person or online event with your family, friends and neighbors to make sure everyone you know is registered. Bring them with 2 forms of identification, naturalization certificate, if necessary, to one of the locations below.

• Follow us on social media to get reminders that September 28 is the big day! We’re really excited to be able to join thousands of groups across America for this important national holiday.

Thanks so much for your support!

National Voter Registration Day Venues

Have an address change or ready to register to vote for the first time? Bring two forms of I.D., one with your current address (utility bill rent receipt, etc., student I.D.) and, if applicable, your naturalization certificate to any venue below. You may also visit the Winnebago or Boone County Clerks offices or the Rockford Board of Elections.
