September 28, 2021 • Inver Hills working with LeadMN to get out the vote
First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is a nonpartisan holiday that involves thousands of organizations and volunteers working together to ensure their family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote and ready to cast a ballot. This year, National Voter Registration Day will be celebrated Tuesday, September 28, 2021.
As Minnesota’s State Captain for National Voter Registration Day, LeadMN is working with Minnesota colleges to help them succeed in registering students on their campuses to vote. Utilizing National Voter Registration Day as a celebration of democracy and civic engagement on the Inver Hills campus is one highly effective strategy.
Shannon Williams, community-based learning coordinator at Inver Hills, reported that the college is hosting an event on National Voter Registration Day at 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Student Life office; free coffee and donuts will be provided. Shannon will be showing students how to register to vote, update their voter registration, and find out what’s on their ballot.
“Over the next three weeks, but starting on NVRD, we are doing 30-plus class visits, online and in person, to speak to students about how to register to vote,” Shannon said. “I’ll be sharing NVRD social media posts on the Career Development Facebook page.”
Shannon added that National Voter Education Week takes place October 4–8, 2021, with NVRD promotion continuing into that time period.
