The League of Women Voters of Sussex County and Delaware Technical Community College are marking National Voter Registration Day with on-site voter registration and information tables on Tuesday, September 24. League volunteers will be on hand to register students, faculty, employees, and visitors in the cafeteria between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm and at the Book Store between 4:00 and 6:00 pm.
Initiated in 2012 for the presidential election, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right—the right to vote. As a nonpartisan national holiday, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum.
“The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for public office,” said LWVSC President Gwendolyn Miller. “Our aim is to get everyone out to vote, regardless of party affiliation, and we’re spreading the word that anyone with access to the internet can easily register online.”
Delaware residents who are U.S. citizens, 18 years old or over, can log onto iVOTE.DE.gov to register. The League’s nonpartisan voters’ guide VOTE411.org also provides information on voting procedures, polling locations, sample ballots, and applications for absentee ballots. Go to sussexlwv.org or VOTE411.org for more information.
