Today’s Action: Celebrate National Voter Registration Day!

Today is National Voter Registration Day – a holiday celebrating American voters AND building up our ranks. Hundreds of events and thousands of volunteers across the country are doing their best to keep the power of the people powerful, by registering as many new voters as they can.

Boosting voter registration is the key to democratic (small d) and Democratic (big D) success in 2020 – the votes are there to defeat Trump and flip the Senate IF we can get those folks in key states registered and voting. In other words, getting people registered is the single most important thing we can do to hit our goal of a Trump-free government.

And you can help!

  1. Share the OD Action voter registration tool with your friends, family, and community, and urge them to register TODAY.
  2. Want to do more? Write letters to register voters in key swing states like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia with the tools provided by Vote Forward. You can do it all from the comfort of your own home!

A Democratic victory in the White House and Senate will require all of us doing more than just casting our own vote – it’s simply not enough. That’s why Vote Forward is focusing on writing letters to register voters in states like Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania – historic battleground areas that need a tipping point of Democrats.

And Republican gerrymandering at the state level affects you considerably, no matter where you live. For example, in 2018, North Carolina Republicans won 50.3% of the popular vote for House seats – but kept control of a disproportionate 10 out of 13 seats (76.9%) in the House of Representatives, stealing three Democratic seats. The state leadership draws the district lines for those seats, but we all feel national results.

We are about 13 months away from the presidential election, and just four months from the first primary contest (Iowa) – so there’s no time to delay jumping in on getting every American and Democrat ready to cast their ballots.

First, share the OD Action voter registration tool with your community for easy registration steps (it takes two minutes)! Next, take direct action in swing states by writing letters to register voters – Vote Forward makes it easy!
