Today is National Voter Registration Day. Here’s how to register
The Nov. 3, 2020, general election may be the most important election in your lifetime. Today’s National Voter Registration Day project is the nation’s largest nonpartisan effort to get out the vote.
The quickest way to register to vote is to use the portal created by the National Voter Registration Day project, or the one created by the Cannabis Voter Project. Both work well. They’ll check your registration status in an instant, and guide you through the process if you’re not registered. It’s quick and easy.
