The goal for the 2014 National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation by encouraging Americans to register to vote and come to the polls this fall.  Montgomery County Board of Elections’ President Mary Ann Keeffe encourages all US Citizens who are Montgomery County residents to register to vote and ask your family and friends to register and vote.  To check to see if you are registered and for more information go to:  https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/VoterSearch.

As a non-partisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum. Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right—the right to vote.

Americans can register at hundreds of events across the nation and online at  www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org. Supporters can also follow National Voter Registration Day activities through social media on September 23 by searching #CelebrateNVRD.
