Nationwide effort seeks to register thousands of voters

• L&T staff report

Next Tuesday, Liberal’s Memorial Library will join more than 2,500 partners nationwide in hosting a National Voter Registration Day 2017 event as part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the library at 519 N. Kansas in Liberal. Library director Royce Kitts said in a press release the goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2017 state and municipal elections across the country by encouraging Americans to register to vote to make their voices heard at the ballot box.

“While national elections get the media attention, local elections in many ways have a more direct impact on people’s lives, including the quality of roads and transit systems, the schools our kids attend, parks and greenways, public safety and more,” Kitts said. “Since its founding in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has grown into a massive cultural and civic event with nationwide reach.”

Kitts added as a non-partisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum.

“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,” he said.

Americans can register at hundreds of events across the nation and online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org. Supporters can also follow National Voter Registration Day activities through social media on Tuesday by searching #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
