National Voter Registration Day was a massive success!
April 19th marked National Voter Registration Day, and with local elections taking place on May 6th, it was the last day to register to vote. Thanks to the many who engaged and amplified our messages on voter registration, this day was a massive success!
Over 85,000 people registered to vote on April 19th. Through our social media channels alone, we reached over 565,000 people. With the help of social media users, we surely reached many more people!
As well as receiving support from all of the major UK political parties, we received support from over 40 organisations across the UK including businesses and the third sector. Our efforts to ensure that more people register to vote did not go unnoticed as we achieved so much in one day.
Through our Instagram content and live panels, we engaged over 11,300 people. Our guest speakers included the Mayor of London, TY Logan, Billie JD Porter, and many more incredible speakers.
National Voter Registration Day received so much support on Twitter from celebrities, influencers, journalists and activists who urged people to register to vote! Without their support and support from our partners, followers, and more, all of this wouldn't have been possible.
We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who participated.
We're eagerly awaiting the next NVRD and we hope that you will be there!
