Happy National Voter Registration Day!

Happy National Voter Registration Day!

Today is the third annual National Voter Registration Day, sponsored by the National Association of Secretaries of State and nonprofit organizations. Volunteers will be in public locations such as transportation hubs, stores, and sports and entertainment venues to register new voters and help those already on the rolls update their addresses, names, and other information. Eligible citizens can also go online to register or update their voter registrations here.

In the first two years, more than 1,000 groups participated in National Voter Registration Day, with 10,000 volunteers registering more than 360,000 people to vote.

Pew is committed to improving the efficiency and accuracy of state voter registration lists by facilitating coordination among states to update voter rolls. Pew also advocates for increasing the availability of online voter registration and improving state motor voter programs.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.
