The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections and Cleveland Votes are launching the “Register Now” campaign, in recognition of National Voter Registration Day.
The Board and its community partners have a goal of registering or updating the registrations of 10,000 voters by encouraging them to Register Now as opposed to putting it off until it may be too late to vote in the November 3rd General Election.
“We are bringing together individuals, groups and organizations, that want to assist in getting more people involved with the democratic process,” said Pat McDonald, the Director of the Board of Elections. “This massive voter registration drive will culminate on September 22nd, which is National Voter Registration Day. I am inviting all civic-minded people to be part of the Register Now drive.”
Register Now campaign information is on the Board’s website as well as a link to the National Voter Registration Day site which allows individuals to look up voter registration drives in the area. Register Now partners have also placed voter registration information on their websites and are using the influential power of social media and other communication networks to help spread the word.
The Board of Elections is holding Register Now events on September 22nd at the following locations:
– Cleveland State University Student Union: 2121 Euclid Avenue from 11:00a.m.-2:00p.m.
– Cuyahoga County Community College- Metro Campus Cafeteria: 2900 Community College Drive from 11:00a.m.-2:00p.m.
– Urban West Community School: 4909 Lorain Avenue from 4:00p.m.- 8:00p.m.
Social Media users will be able to become part of the conversation by using the “#RegisterNow” hashtag to connect with others who are also interested in voter registration.
