Cranston Public Library to Participate in National Voter Registration Day

On September 22, 2015, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) with a massive 50-state effort to register voters.

The theme for this year’s National Voter Registration Day is "Celebrating Democracy in America." Thousands of national, state, local organizations and volunteers will be the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day 2015. Partner organizations will coordinate hundreds of NVRD events nationwide and leverage #CelebrateNVRD in all social media platforms to drive attention to voter registration and the midterm elections.

Cranston Public Library is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner. On Tuesday, September 22, the Central Library will host a Voter Registration Drive from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM. Registrants are invited to drop in to celebrate democracy and their right to vote. Library newcomers will also be invited to sign up for library cards. 

The effort’s website, www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org, provides a listing of National Voter Registration Day events across the country.

Started in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right—the right to vote. More than 356,000 Americans have been registered to vote since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day.

The Central Library is located at 140 Sockanosset Cross Rd, Cranston RI 02920.
