September 25, 2012: National Voter Registration Day

"We stand today with all Americans on National Voter Registration Day to encourage the estimated 6 million Americans who did not vote in 2008 because they either missed a registration deadline or did not know how to register to make their voices heard.  We must make sure that, in the upcoming Presidential election, every voter has a voice.

We join the thousands of volunteers and organizations from across the country during this day of coordinated field, technology and media outreach.  Our collective goal is ambitious yet achievable:  we will empower tens of thousands of voters who were not reached in 2008.  This is work we must do, and we invite you do join us today."
