Oak Orchard Health to hold voter registration drive Sept. 26
On Tuesday, Sept. 26, Oak Orchard Health will join more than 2,500 partners nationwide in hosting a National Voter Registration Day 2017 event at its centers in Albion, Brockport and Warsaw. They will be part of a massive 50-state effort to register thousands of voters.
The event will be held at the following locations:
• 81 S. Main St., Warsaw, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.;
• 301 West Ave., Albion, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and
• 300 West Ave., Brockport, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The goal for this year’s annual National Voter Registration Day is to increase participation in the 2017 state and municipal elections across the country. The event aims to encourage Americans to register to vote and make their voices heard at the ballot box.
While national elections get the media attention, local elections in many ways have a more direct impact on people’s lives. Local government is accountable for the quality of roads and transit systems, schools, parks and greenways, public safety and more.
National Voter Registration Day started in 2012 for the presidential election. The event is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote.
Americans can also register to vote online at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org.
