This week, I want to talk about voter registration. In most states, voter registration closes 25-30 days before an election. This year that means, in some states, October 4, 2020 is the last day to register. You can go to www.vote.org to check registration deadlines. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic many voter registration outlets, like the Department of Motor Vehicles, was closed for several months. Additionally, other voter registration sites, such as libraries and social service agencies were closed. In 2016, 33% of all registrations came from the DMV. There are a few states (21) that allow you to register and vote on the same day, even through election day. Here are a few websites where you can register to vote or check your registration: https://www.whenweallvote.org/; https://www.spreadthevote.org/; https://www.vote.org/
If you’re not registered, you can’t vote. Know before you go!!
