It’s National Voter Registration Day – Where to Register in Weld & Larimer Counties
September 25 is National Voter Registration Day. A day when volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country hit the streets to get people registered to vote. Here is how and where to register in Northern Colorado.
The group behind National Voter Registration Day said it wants to make sure no American is left out in 2012. So they are out to remind and inform people today before it is too late. In 2008, 6 million Americans did not vote because they did not know how to register or they missed their state's voter registration deadline, according to the US Census.
