Secretary of State Jim Condos Announces September 25, 2012 is National Voter Registration Day!

Secretary of State Jim Condos announces to all Vermonters that Tuesday, September 25th is National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). The National Association of Secretaries of State is supporting the effort to increase voter registration and voter participation in the upcoming general election on November 6th.

“Register in September, make it count in November!” Secretary Condos stated.

“It is no secret that I support and encourage all eligible citizens of our great state to be civic minded and use their voice at the ballot box by voting. As the Chief Elections Officer for Vermont, I consider it one of my highest priorities to increase voter participation and encourage democracy in action,” furthered Condos.

The impact of this day is driven by partner organizations that are stepping up to play an important role in their communities all across Vermont by driving attention and action around voter registration, and to make this civic duty part of an everyday conversation. Nationally, partners include major technology companies, retailers, and non-profits including the League of Women Voters, YWCA, Patagonia, and more.
