Founded in 2012, 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. More than two million Americans have registered to vote on this day since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day.

The League of Women Voters of Evanston is committed to strengthening the community by getting voters registered. Community members are invited to attend one of several local voter registration events: at the Evanston Public Library, the YMCA, a Metra station, or at the City Clerk’s Office in the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center. Primary races are just around the corner.

These events will be staffed by member organizations of the Voter Participation Action Coalition including the League of Women Voters, NAACP, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, YWCA, Latino Resources, and Alpha Kappa Alpha, by committed volunteers – people who value civic participation and are willing to take a few hours for one day to help make the bonds of our communities stronger.
