Tomorrow is National Voter Registration Day, which falls on the fourth Tuesday of September every year. Although it is not a national holiday, National Voter Registration Day is supported by a wide range of organizations that help to promote voter registration around the country. Here in Houston, a number of registration drives will be held all over the city, including one at the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work. To find out more about registering to vote, or to register online, visit the National Voter Registration Day website.
This year, election day falls on November 4. In this midterm election, all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives will be contested, as well as 33 of the Senate’s 100 seats.
