September is National Voter Registration Month

For Immediate Release — Sept. 1, 2022 — Washington, D.C. — Annually the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) recognizes September as National Voter Registration Month. This month highlights the tremendous significance of voter participation and awareness around the registration and election processes. 

“By coming together during the 2022 election cycle to celebrate National Voter Registra­tion Month, it’s my hope that my Chief Election Official colleagues and I can reach expo­nentially more citizens across the country and activate them to register to vote,” said NASS President and New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “If you aren’t regis­tered to vote or haven’t updated your voter registration in a while, this is the time to get it done!”

This marks 20 years since NASS members established September as National Voter Reg­istration Month in 2002. Also, NASS continues to support and promote National Voter Reg­istration Day, which will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.
