Last Tuesday, September 24, was National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). Established in 2012, this day is an opportunity for voting advocacy groups across the country to get people registered--and excited--to vote. The League of Women Voters is the largest organizational partner in the effort and this year there were more than 500 voter registration events hosted by local Leagues in cities and towns across the country.
Leagues right here in Washington registered and educated hundreds of voters (and future voters!). The photos below are just a snapshot of the many events across the state last Tuesday.
