September Registration Events

Voter RegistrationThe following events to register voters are a terrific way for our experienced and new members to participate in one of the most meaningful League activities. If you have not registered voters before or would like to do so again, volunteers are always needed for however long you might help out!   

National Voter Registration Day: Tuesday, September 23, 2014

On September 23, 2014, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities–allowing us to reach tens of thousands of voters who we could not reach otherwise.

The League of Women Voters of Southwest Nassau will have a table at Green Acres Mall, in front of JC Penny’s, from 9:30am to 9pm, where we will meet voters,  neighbors,  and potential new members to League.  We will also introduce all to Vote411, the online Voters Guide.  To volunteer for this event, please call Peter Rosenthal to at 347-307-3994.
