The countdown to our 2020 elections has begun. Each year, there are millions of eligible voters who cannot cast a ballot because they aren’t registered to vote or there are issues with their registration status.

Since today is National Voter Registration Day, please take a moment to register to vote. If you are registered, take a moment to check your registration status to ensure that your address and name are current with your local board of elections.

This year, voting holds more more challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so, if you can, make sure you sign up for mail-in-voting or register for an absentee ballot. If your state allows early voting, take advantage of that option to avoid excessive lines and crowds on election day.

Please share this information with your friends and family. On social media, use the hashtags #NationalVoterRegistrationDay and #VoteReady to increase visibility. Thanks for taking a few moments to strengthen your community—and our country—with your voice.
