Equality Texas is excited to once again be part of a national effort to strengthen our LGBTQ community by registering hundreds of voters on September 26, 2017, also known as National Voter Registration Day.
First started for the 2012 presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday where thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.
Why register in 2017, you may ask? Our answer: States, cities, counties and small towns have big elections this fall. Primaries for next year’s state and national elections are months away. As a nonpartisan equality coalition of organizations, National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support. Now more than ever the LGBTQ community must come together and elect officials that will advance fair and equal treatment for all.
Pledge to vote by letting us know if you are already registered or if you need more information on how to become registered. PLEDGE TO VOTE TODAY!
Help us spread the word by using #NationalVoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word!
We’re really excited to be able to join hundreds of groups across America for this important national holiday. Thanks so much for your support!
