State Rep. Paula Hicks-Hudson (D-Toledo) today released the following statement in celebration of National Voter Registration Day:
“Today is the day to make sure your voice can be heard,” said Rep. Hicks-Hudson. “Check your voting status! Register or update your registration so you can vote in November. Every vote matters.”
National Voter Registration Day is recognized yearly on the fourth Tuesday in September and seeks to raise awareness of voter registration opportunities for voters who may not register otherwise.
This year’s holiday comes just weeks after the Ohio Secretary of State removed thousands of eligible Ohioans from the voter rolls in an ongoing voter purge that has been criticized by Democrats and voting rights groups.
In 2018, over 1 million eligible Ohioans were not registered to vote. To register, update or check your voter registration, visit voterlookup.ohiosos.gov.
