(BROWNSTOWN) – The Jackson County Public Library and the Jackson County Clerk’s Officer is hosting a National Voter Registration Day event set on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Andrea Edwards from the Jackson County Clerk’s Office will present a voter register video on the Jackson County Public Library’s Facebook page at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
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.
National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity. It’s an opportunity to set aside differences, enjoy the rights and opportunities we all share as Americans, and celebrate our democracy.
Americans can register at hundreds of events across the nation and online at nationalvoterregistrationday.org, which is a nonpartisan group website.
Online registration also is available at indianavoters.in.gov. The deadline to register is Oct. 5.
To register to vote you must be U.S. citizens, present a driver’s license or state identification card and be 18 years old by the next Election Day on Nov. 3.
Registration forms are available through curbside pickup at all Jackson County Public Library locations or on the library website at myjclibrary.org/vote.
