WASHINGTON, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- National Voter Registration Day, which this year falls on Tuesday, September 23rd, has reached a milestone, as more than 1,000 partners have signed on to host voter registration events across the nation on this national day of civic action.
Together, these organizations and their volunteers will celebrate National Voter Registration Day, the largest single-day effort of the year to register voters and involve them in the American political process. Now in its third year, more than 350,000 voters have registered through the efforts of more than 2,100 partners.
In 2014, this national day of civic action once again boasts the support and recognition of the National Association of Secretaries of State, which has passed a five-year resolution proclaiming the fourth Tuesday of September as National Voter Registration Day.
This year's National Voter Registration Day is particularly important as Americans will vote in national and statewide elections. Ballots will include contests for 471 congressional seats, 36 governorships, and the makeup of 46 state legislatures.
Organizations can sign up to become a National Voter Registration Day partner through a new website, www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org. The new site features resources that make it easy for partners to plan and promote their voter registration events on September 23rd, including field planning and communications toolkits, posters, social media graphics, and much more. Partners that sign up by September 5, 2014 will receive free printed materials to execute their voter registration events.

About National Voter Registration Day
National Voter Registration Day is a one-day effort of coordinated field, technology, and media initiatives to create pervasive awareness of voter registration and voting. Led by thousands of national, state, and local organizations and their volunteers, National Voter Registration Day is to civic engagement what Earth Day is to environmental awareness. National Voter Registration Day, which started in 2012, is held every fourth Tuesday in September—before voter registration deadlines nationwide—and is designed to remind and encourage eligible Americans to prepare to exercise their most basic civil right, their right to vote.
