The Warren County Election Commission wishes to remind citizens Sept. 24 is National Voter Registration Day. The day is the high point of National Voter Registration Month, a time when state and county election officials have been working to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.
On Sept. 24, county elections officials invite you to be a part of an informative program at the Warren County Senior Center at 1 p.m. Election officials also plan to conduct a registration drive at the high school that day to register students who will turn 18 before the next election.
“National Voter Registration Day is a great time to make sure your registration is up to date or to register for the first time,” said Warren County election administrator Donna Smith. “We are ready to help you in any way we can so you can become a registered and informed voter.”
Social media has played a role in this month’s promotion. Voters have been encouraged to visit www.GoVoteTN.com, print a sign, and then post a photo of themselves holding the sign on social media using the hashtag #GoVoteTN.
“I am excited to see so many voters sharing their enthusiasm for National Voter Registration Month,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett, who serves as president of the National Association of Secretaries of State. “I encourage voters to visit our website to make sure they are properly registered to vote at their current addresses. Also, I encourage even more people to get involved in the campaign via social media."
