About National Voter Registration Day
National Voter Registration Day is an organization that recognizes the importance of voting and democracy. In 2019, Alkek Library participated in National Voter Registration Day to educate and register voters in their communities. Library staff who participated in the event were able to register more than 160 people to vote and interact with 150+ more students who had questions about voting.
The Pros of Registering to Vote at your Library...
Staff who register voters have gone through training and taken a test authorized by the Texas Secretary of State
Bringing convenience and troubleshooting directly to students
Students can vote on campus, so they need to be able to register to vote on campus as well
Library staff are experienced with helping students locate reliable and legitimate information
Staff that can register voters are able to assist with the voter registration process (and clarify which questions don't have to be answered on your voting application.)
Hosting a voting event at the library opens up the opportunity to collaborate with Student Government, and empower students when it comes to civic engagement and conversation.
Staff that are volunteer deputy registrars are able to take student applications directly to the government building in their county. This provides more efficiency and convenience to students who decide to register with us. Image: Flaglerlive.com
