What is National Voter Registration Day?
National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit effort to raise national awareness of voter registration deadlines in every election cycle. On September 27, 2016, NVRD will host hundreds of events in order to reach and register eligible Americans across the country.
Why do we think this project is important?
Democracy Fund Voice believes an engaged citizenry is central to a responsive republic, and our elections are at their strongest when more eligible voters punch their ballots. NVRD leverages an array of technology, partnerships, and culture to engage and register eligible Americans.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting the project?
In 2016, Democracy Fund Voice approved a grant of $250,000 to National Voter Registration Day, administered by the Bus Federation Education Fund, for voter outreach and registration.
