The League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha is a Proud Partner of National Voter Registration Day 2018
LWVGO Joins 2,500+ Partners Nationwide in Massive Push to Register Voters on Sept. 25.
On September 25, 2018, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a massive 50-state effort to register voters before Election Day this November. National Voter Registration Day is a nationwide, non-partisan effort to register voters on Tuesday, Sept. 25. More than two million Americans have registered to vote on this day since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day.
The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2018 state and municipal elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box. While national elections get the media attention, local elections in many ways have a more direct impact on people’s lives, including the quality of roads and transit systems, the schools our kids attend, parks and greenways, public safety, and more. In Omaha, voters will weigh in on a ballot referendum on Medicaid Expansion alongside races for Nebraska Governor, Senate, House of Representatives, State Senator, and more. Since its founding in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has grown into a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.
Thousands of national, state, and local organizations and volunteers will be the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day 2018. Partner organizations will coordinate hundreds of National Voter Registration Day events nationwide.
