UNION, NJ - Members of the League of Women Voters of the Union Area will register new voters on National Voter Registration Day, September 25, at the Union Public Library.
Young people now can register at age 17, making them eligible to vote when they reach 18 without further action.
Voter Registration Day is observed nationally in an effort to make sure that every American citizen is eligible to cast a ballot on Election Day. The League of Women Voters is one many organizations that participate.
For those unable to register in person, voter registration forms are available on the website of the New Jersey League of Women Voters, lwvnj.org, in both English and Spanish for all counties in the state.
The event at the Union Public Library will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The League, a nonpartisan organization that encourages all citizens to take an active, informed interest in government, also has a website, vote411, that gives background information about candidates and issues. In addition, individual League units throughout the state sponsor forums for local candidates and on local issues.
