As the weather warms up and schools dismiss for summer break, millions of young Americans are starting a new chapter in their lives.
Graduation is a major milestone after which many young adults move and embark upon new challenges. The League of Women Voters wants to help these recent graduates become active and engaged members of their new communities – help us encourage the graduates in your life to register to vote.
The League registers voters year-round, especially those voters who turn 18, move homes, change their name or need to update their registration for any other reason. But today we’re celebrating the power of registering to vote more than ever because it’s the 21st anniversary of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA)! The League led the charge to pass this vital legislation that made it easier for Americans to vote, and brought millions of citizens into the democratic process, protecting the integrity of federal elections across the country.
Celebrate the 21st anniversary of the NVRA by sending the new graduates you know our eCard encouraging them to register to vote today. The League’s eCard directs recipients to VOTE411.org, our online elections resource where they can easily start the process of becoming active participants in our democracy.
Help us reach even more potential voters – send the graduates you know our eCard to congratulate them on their recent achievement and to remind them to register to vote or update their voter registration.
With your help, we’ll make sure our youngest voters have a voice on the issues that are most important to them. Thank you for Making Democracy Work®.
