The Santa Cruz County League of Women Voters will also be registering voters at two locations on Tuesday, September 26:
· Capitola Mall Food Court from 4 to 7 p.m., and
· Bookshop Santa Cruz, outside on Pacific Avenue from 5 to 8 p.m.
Every year millions of Americans don’t claim their right to vote because they miss a deadline, move, change names, or don’t know how to register in the first place. With over a quarter of Americans not voting at all, National Voter Registration Day is an occasion for community institutions, voters and election leaders to build a more representative democracy.
