National Voter Registration Day
At Sage Collective, we believe everyone should actively participate in the privilege of engaging in politics. We’ve previously discussed the importance of older adults engaging in politics, which you can read about here. The civic duty of voting in elections at all levels throughout the year is a vital aspect of political involvement. However, before you participate, you must first be registered to vote.
Today, September 28, is National Voter Registration Day. The task, which many believe to be time-consuming and demanding, is actually very simple. Voter registration rules and regulations vary by state. In Illinois, citizens have the option of registering in person (before an election or same day), by mail or online.
We encourage you to register to vote and learn more about specific deadlines, rules and directions at vote.org or here.
