LULAC for Voter Registration Day

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) joins 1,100 other national organizations on National Voter Registration Day to urge all unregistered voters to register and to go out and VOTE on Nov. 6. National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan effort to ensure that all registered voters vote. The 2008 election was reportedly plagued with voter registration issues that prevented approximately 6 million eligible voters from voting. In an effort to prevent the low voter turnout rates of 2010, LULAC calls all eligible voters to register and vote.

Throughout the year, LULAC-trained staff and volunteers have provided information and training to LULAC council members in both English and Spanish to register people to vote in the following states: Virginia, Texas, California, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, District of Columbia, Illinois, Iowa, Georgia, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, New York and Wisconsin.

Voters can learn more information regarding state deadlines, by going to www.LULAC.org/vote. Eligible voters will be provided information on what they need to bring on November 6, 2012, so they are not turned away at the polls. Attendees must bring identification in order to register on-site.
