About National Voter Registration Day
Miami Dade College is committed to helping all eligible students register to vote and be “election-ready.” Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they haven’t updated their registration, aren’t sure how to register, or have missed an important registration deadline.
Established in 2012, National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is dedicated to civic unity and a time to set aside differences and celebrate democracy, as well as the rights and opportunities shared by all Americans.
On NVRD, MDC’s eight campuses will host voter registration events to encourage students and the community to register to vote. Events are free and open to the public and include entertainment, games and refreshments.
For more information on MDC’s voter engagement activities, or on how you can register to vote, contact your campus iCED office.
Partners for these year’s event include MDC’s Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy, MDC’s Student Life, Engage Miami, Univision, the Campus Election Engagement Project, the Andrew Goodman Foundation, the League of Women Voters, Catholic Legal Services, the Florida Immigrant Coalition, and Campus Vote Project.
