National Voter Registration Day

Minnesota consistently leads the nation in voter turnout. However, 700,000* eligible Minnesota residents are not registered to vote. Nationally, it is estimated that 8 million eligible citizens have not registered.

National Voter Registration Day is an annual civic event in September created to address this problem. On this day, thousands of organizations and citizens across the nation join together to register voters.

*Based on current Minnesota registration totals and the estimated number of eligible voters in Minnesota.
