With National Voter Registration Day in mind, the EAC will use a new Registration->Participation campaign to highlight the importance of registering to vote, updating your current voter registration information, and why exercising the right to vote is fundamental to our democracy.


  • Registration=>Participation: Tomorrow is the big day!

    Sep 25, 2017
    Tomorrow is National Voter Registration Day! The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) encourages every eligible American to register to vote or update their voter registration. There’s no time like the present because elections are happening right now across the nation and next year’s Federal Election is just a little more than one year away.
  • The Power of a Single Vote

    In the political realm, unfortunately, our nation has become more and more divided. While close elections are not new, in recent years it seems more and more elections are divided by fewer and fewer votes. But like the townspeople who were divided over the fire truck, we CAN put aside political differences and be united.

  • Election Officials, Americans Each Play Important Roles in Voter Registration

    September 26 is National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). While there are many “days” that we celebrate each year (including today’s celebration of National Bow Tie Day), Americans should pay special attention to NVRD because academic research shows us that the average voter doesn’t know or understand the registration process.
  • Registration->Participation: Democracy Starts With You!

    Aug 25, 2017
    Did you know that September 26 is the fifth annual National Voter Registration Day (NVRD)? To celebrate, the EAC will spend the next few weeks using its new Registration->Participation campaign to highlight the importance of registering to vote, updating your current voter registration information, and why exercising the right to vote is fundamental to our democracy.
