We need our elected officials to support our priorities, like new protected bike lanes, complete sidewalk networks, and reliable transit. As advocates for safe streets, we need our voices heard. We need to vote for the candidates and issues that matter most.
That is why we’re excited to be part of a national effort to strengthen our community by registering hundreds of voters on September 27, 2016, also known as National Voter Registration Day. Take action now, go straight to Oregon Secretary of State’s website to make sure your voter registration is up to date.
First started for the 2012 presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday when thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.
National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you. I invite you to register to vote, learn more at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org and use #VoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word!
Once you’ve updated your registration and you’re ready to celebrate head on down to Patagonia Portland at 907 NW Irving St. in Portland to party with our friends at The Bus Project and Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins.
