Marywood to Mark National Voter Registration Day on September 22nd

Marywood University will celebrate National Voter Registration Day with its Pacer to the Polls initiative on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Marywood will join more than 2,000 organizations that are partnering for cross-country efforts to register voters well in advance of Election Day this November. 

With a historic presidential election approaching, every eligible American voter should exercise her or his right to be heard at the ballot box, and National Voter Registration Day is the right day to start by getting registered. This is why communities across the country are planning to use the day to increase voter participation.

In addition, Marywood University has joined more than 160 college presidents and chancellors in committing to full student voter registration and participation in all elections through the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge (All IN). To support full student voter participation of all eligible students, ALL IN and its Higher Education Presidents Council has launched a call to action for higher education presidents and chancellors to fully engage students in electoral participation.

Marywood University will host various virtual and in-person opportunities throughout the day. To find out the list of activities for the National Voter Registration Day at Marywood University, please follow us @marywoodactivities on Instagram, and like/follow Marywood Activities Council on Facebook, as there will be many opportunities for engagement via social media leading up to and during the event.
