Happy National Voter Registration Day! As a co-founder of the civic holiday, NVRD is one of our favorite days of the year! Today, the entire country unites in getting our communities registered to vote, and celebrating being voters. If you’re already registered to vote, don’t sweat it. There’s still plenty of things you can do today to celebrate the start of Civic Holidays season!
Here are 5 things to do on National Voter Registration Day even if you’re already a registered voter:
1. Double Check Your Voter Registration
