HOPE for Our Future: National Voter Registration Day, 2016
September 21st, 2016
On National Voter Registration Day, September 27, HOPE will join several local organizations and student groups across the Mid South to register people to vote during the HOPE for our Future Voter Registration Drive. National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is a nationwide, nonpartisan effort to register people to vote. Voting is a fundamental right and privilege for Americans; however, thousands of American citizens fail to register to vote. In, 2012, just 71.2 percent of voting-age citizens were registered to vote in the presidential election.
The table below provides a snapshot of the registration and voting statistics in the Mid South states.
The deadline to register to vote varies from state to state, so be sure to check the deadline in your state. The table below provides information on the General Election deadlines for each of the Mid South states.
For over 20 years, HOPE has been committed to strengthening communities, building assets and improving lives in economically distressed areas in the Mid South. The HOPE for our Future Voter Registration Drive is an extension of HOPE public service efforts in the communities we serve.
