LWV celebrates National Voter Registration Day

Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. The Beaufort chapter of the League of Women Voters wants to help voters avoid that fate. 

The purpose of National Voter Registration Day is to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. On Tuesday, Sept. 25, many organizations around the country will participate in helping to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach thousands of voters who may not register otherwise. 

The League of Women Voters Beaufort will host a celebration for National Voter Registration Day, Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Santa Elena History Center, 1501 Bay Street, downtown Beaufort. Volunteers will be on hand to register voters and prepare for the upcoming November elections. All are welcome to come by to learn more about voter registration and enjoy some music, guest speakers, food trucks and fun. 

The League of Women Voters Beaufort Area wants to make sure you are able to vote on Nov. 6 by calling upon anyone to register if they are: 

  • Not registered and will be 18 years old by Nov. 6
  • Are already registered but have changed your name
  • Are already registered but have changed your address
  • Are an ex-offender who has completed your sentence, parole and probation
