Finlandia to host Voter Registration Day event on Sept. 22

HANCOCK — On Sept. 22, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a massive cross-country effort to register voters well in advance of Election Day this November.

Finlandia University is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner. On Sept. 22, FinnU will engage its community and register voters by hosting a voter registration table on Summit St. between Nikander and Wargelin from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Houghton County Clerk, Jennifer Kelly, will be on site to answer questions, and Finlandia faculty and staff will help FinnU community members register or check their registration.

With a historic presidential election approaching, every eligible American voter should exercise his or her right to be heard at the ballot box, and National Voter Registration Day is the right day to start by getting registered. This is why communities across the country are planning to use National Voter Registration Day to increase voter participation.

Thousands of national, state, and local organizations and volunteers will be the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day 2020. Partner organizations will coordinate hundreds of National Voter Registration Day events on and offline nationwide, and leverage #NationalVoterRegistrationDay in all social media platforms to drive attention to voter registration.

The effort’s website, www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org, provides a listing of National Voter Registration Day events across the country, in communities and held virtually.

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. Nearly 3 million Americans have registered to vote on the holiday since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day in 2012.
