TUMBLR TUESDAY: REGISTER TO VOTE EDITION
Does it feel like election day is still ages away? It’s not; in fact, early voting began for half of the country this week. And for half of the country, if you’re not yet registered in just two weeks, you’ll lose the chance to vote entirely. That’s what happened to 6 million Americans in 2008; this year, we’re participating in National Voter Registration Day to help make sure you’re not left out.
For more info, follow National Voter Registration Day on Tumblr, or track the tag #925NVRD. You can register in person at an NVRD meetup happening near you, or phone in any questions to the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
And even if you’re already registered, please reblog this post to ensure none of your followers miss it!
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!
