On September 27, 2016, volunteers, civic groups, and nonprofit organizations across Colorado and the United States will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). NVRD is the nation's largest one day effort to register voters and to celebrate the right to vote. NVRD is a great opportunity to register thousands of Coloradans and ensure they can cast votes in the November 8 election.
By participating in NVRD, your nonprofit will empower the people you serve and build support for your cause! Check out Nonprofit Vote’s ‘Why Voting’ for even more reasons to get involved.
