National Voter Registration Day on September 28th: How to Take Part in the Awareness Drive
Every Vote Counts!
Every year, millions of Americans are unable to vote. The 2020 U.S. Census data revealed that as many as one in four eligible Americans is not a registered voter.
Some may have missed the deadline for voter registration, while others may have failed to update their registration. Some others probably aren’t sure how the registration process works.
That’s the reason why National Voter Registration Day was created: To make sure that all eligible Americans get the opportunity to practice their right to vote. Held on the fourth Tuesday in September of each year, National Voter Registration Day is an awareness campaign that seeks to remind voters about their rights and voting requirements. This year, it will be held on September 28th.
On this day, hundreds of local, state, and national organizations coordinate public events to spread the word about local elections, ballot initiatives, and of course, voter registration. They also provide valuable information for each state, considering that each state follows a different set of polling rules.
How You Can Take Part in the Campaign
Every vote matters, and yes, that includes yours. If you haven’t registered yet, National Voter Registration Day is the reminder you need to do just that.
You might also want to use the unofficial holiday as an opportunity to learn about your rights and requirements as a voter. Be sure that you know where your polling place is.
You can likewise do your part in promoting greater people’s participation in our electoral exercises to further strengthen our nation’s democratic foundations. Kids Car Donations offers these three simple ways of taking part in the National Voter Registration Day awareness campaign:
1. Encourage at least five friends to check their registration status.
Reach out to at least five close friends and ask them to double-check their registration status. Any misspellings on their provided details can disqualify them from voting. Also, remind them to update their addresses if necessary.
2. Share resources.
As previously mentioned, millions of eligible Americans fail to register. Since many of them haven’t registered because they couldn’t figure out how the process works, you can share resources to make it easier for them to register. For instance, you can inform them of the registration deadline. Some people fail to vote because they missed the voter registration deadline.
Use social media as a platform to keep your community posted on the basic requirements and latest poll reminders.
3. Speak out against voting misconceptions.
Authorities have blamed voting myths for lower voter turnout and less engaged citizens. While some of these myths may not have malicious or deceitful intent, they can still be detrimental to our democracy.
Whether they’re about the frequency of voter fraud, the logistics of voter registration, or the impact of their vote, debunking these myths will help clear things out for Americans who are on the fence about voting.

Just like your vote, a simple vehicle donation can also make a huge impact.
