Councilwoman Cyndi Lamm plans event to register voters in time for Lancaster County and Nebraska Statewide Elections.
WHAT: At 12:00 p.m. CST, Tuesday, September 25, 2018, Lincoln City Councilwoman Cyndi Lamm will host a Voter Registration Day 2018 event at Anderson Branch Library in Lincoln, Nebraska as part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.
WHY: The goal for the 2018 National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation by encouraging Americans to register to vote and come out to the polls this November.
“Our democracy works best when more citizens show up and participate, which makes our election results more representative of what we, the people, want. We’re better off when our elections reflect everyone in our community,” said Councilwoman Lamm.
Lamm continued to further state, “One of the best ways to do that is to ensure that every eligible American is registered to vote, regardless of party affiliation or other views – because if we let democracy itself get thrown under the bus of partisan politics, we all lose.”
As an unofficial nonpartisan national “holiday” for democracy, National Voter Registration Day counts on thousands of partners and volunteers across the political spectrum. Started 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.
