WASHINGTON — Want to get register to vote? Today’s a good day to do it.
Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, a day created in 2012 and dedicated to “create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities” for thousands of Americans with the help of an online campaign and volunteers who “hit the streets” in a coordinated event, according to the National Voter Registration Day site.
The day is a massive effort to register voters before the upcoming elections in the fall.
#NationalVoterRegistrationDay is backed by a variety of companies and groups, from the National Association of Secretaries of State to Facebook and Google.
According to the National Voter Registration Day site, over 800,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote in 2018, across all 50 states.

Just a heads up, though, that online voter registration isn’t available in all 50 states. You can find out here whether your state is among the 37 that allow it.
