If you didn't know, today is National Voter Registration Day. It was developed back in 2012 as a day to get as many voters as possible registered before the elections in the fall. The day was quite successful last year because according to the National Voter Registration Day website, over 800,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote in 2018.
