National Voter Registration Day was September 20; however, many parishes have voter registration throughout the week. Check out the Louisiana Secretary of State’s website for a list of 2022 voter registration week events. Also, click here for additional information on general voter registration information.
This nationwide celebration of democracy is a great opportunity for nonprofits to ensure that their staff, volunteers, and community members are registered to vote. Nonprofits are uniquely positioned to help our communities register and exercise their right to vote. Nonprofits are not only places where people come together, but you we enjoy the trust of our communities and are already experts at remaining nonpartisan. This is more important than ever since many states have changed their rules about registration and procedures on how and where people can vote.
