WASHINGTON, D.C. - The American Library Association (ALA), a Premier Partner of National Voter Registration Day, encourages libraries to sign up to observe the unofficial holiday on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Libraries that sign up by Thursday, September 12, will receive a toolkit of free promotional materials such as posters and stickers, and opportunities for training.
 
National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan, unofficial holiday celebrated on the fourth Tuesday of September. Across the country, libraries provide voter registration forms and information about voting, as well as offer computers, which citizens can use to register to vote, update their voter registration, or research information about voting. National Voter Registration Day will provide participating libraries with a toolkit of activities they can use on Sept. 24. 
 
The deadline to receive free resources for National Voter Registration Day 2019 is September 12, but libraries can register their participation in the event until Sept. 24.
