National Voter Registration Day Is Almost Here!September 19, 2012
The AAUW Action Fund’s It’s My Vote: I Will Be Heard voter education and turnout campaign represents an unprecedented investment in making women’s voices heard in the 2012 election. Follow us on Twitter and on Tumblr for the latest updates, and check out our biweekly Campaign Update for news, resources, and ideas.
We’re 48 days away from Election Day, and we’re down to the last weeks of voter registration for many states. That’s why AAUW has joined groups like the Bus Federation Civic Fund and the League of Women Voters in mobilizing around National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 25. In fact, AAUW has decided to prioritize voter registration for the entire week to maximize the momentum around this effort.
Throughout next week, we’ll be holding voter registration drives, blogging about everything related to voting, tweeting about new resources and event highlights (follow us @itsmyvote!), and continuing to raise awareness about the AAUW Action Fund’s It’s My Vote: I Will Be Heard campaign.
It’s not too late to join in the fun! Host your own voter registration drive, and we’ll highlight it as part of the effort. Request a PDF of the Woman-to-Woman Voter Turnout manual for tips on registering voters, or contact VoterEd@aauw.org with questions.
