MLMS & SOUK announce National Voter Registration Day
Democracy is a fascinating word. To many people around the world, it means different things. But to us at My Life My Say and Shout Out UK, it means to have your voice heard in the decision-making process. We believe that democracy has historically been an important component of this country and that it continues to be. With 9 million people not on the electoral register and one third of them being young people, this campaign is more important than ever.
That’s why we are thrilled to announce that we are working together to re-establish a National Voter Registration Day.
National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) will take place annually to celebrate voter registration and to urge young people, particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds, to register to vote so that they can have their say and partake in elections. This fun and engaging day is set out to educate people on voter registration, democracy, and political participation. It further sets out to challenge rising disinformation in Western democracies. The first launch of this day will take place on April 19th 2021.
With both My Life My Say and Shout Out UK at the forefront of this voter registration campaign, NVRD seeks to inspire and educate people, especially those who do not traditionally engage in politics, to register to vote and further have their say on the national stage. So, make sure that you join our campaign today and get involved by following My Life My Say and Shout Out UK on all of our social media channels!
