Abraham Lincoln said it best:

“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”

Today is National Voter Registration Day. According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. 

If you aren’t registered, here is a good resource to get you started. Do you need to update your voter registration? Are you informed about when your next election is? Your local races? State races?

Today begins a new chapter in finding your voice in this country.
