Library to Host National Voter Registration Day Activities


Kansas City, MO - On Tuesday, September 27, 2016, the Kansas City Public Library is proud to serve as a registration location for National Voter Registration Day.

National Voter Registration Day is a nationwide initiative designed to enhance awareness of voter registration opportunities. Staff members and volunteers will be on hand at all Library locations to register Missouri residents in the weeks leading up to the October 12 registration deadline.

Registrants must meet Missouri guidelines, and need to provide a Missouri driver's license or state-issued ID, Social Security Number, and birthdate.

Registration is free, and will take place during the Library's normal business hours. For hours at specific locations, go to www.kclibrary.org.

National Voter Registration Day was established in 2012 to ensure that no intending voter is left out. Six million Americans said they hadn't voted four years earlier as a result of missing the registration deadline or not knowing how to register.
