National Voter Registration Day and Your Library 2014
Thursday, 28 August 2014 12:35

EveryLibrary is a partner organization for National Voter Registration Day 2014.  Voter registration and voter engagement are important to all the libraries we work with.  But an engaged and informed electorate is basic for the future of libraries. So we’re encouraging libraries to become partner organizations, too.  Your library can share information about voter registration in your communities.  Your library can register people to vote.  Your library already plays a role in civic engagement and democratic expression.  We want to encourage libraries across the county to sign up as a partner organization and invite volunteers to set up a voter registration booth at your library on September 23, 2014.
