National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday encouraging citizens to register to vote, or make sure they are properly registered. The holiday with the not-so-catchy acronym celebrates its 10th anniversary this year on Tuesday, Sept. 20.
In every election, millions of eligible voters lose out on their opportunity to vote because they miss a registration deadline, fail to update their registration if they’ve changed addresses or changed their name, or didn’t register because they just don’t understand the process.
The Voter Services team of the Clerk and Recorder’s Office will do its part on Sept. 20 by helping voters register and update their registration information from 7 a.m.–4 p.m. in a festive booth outside the Administration Building. Staff will be equipped with tablets to allow voters to register or check their registration information.
And look for fun social media posts on the Arapahoe County and Clerk and Recorder social media accounts to share throughout the day.
