Please join the Southwest Harbor Public Library in a national effort to strengthen our community by registering hundreds of voters on September 23, 2014, also known as National Voter Registration Day.
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.
But why vote in 2014, you may ask? 471 congressional seats, 36 governors, and 46 state legislatures are among the many decisions on the ballots in this year’s midterm elections. As a non-partisan coalition of organizations, National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.
Join the YWCA MDI at one of the National Voter Registration Day events on Mount Desert Island. Registration will be available at Jesup Memorial Library, Northeast Harbor Library and Southwest Harbor Public Library from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Registration will also be available at Bass Harbor Memorial Library from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
We are all really excited to be able to join hundreds of groups across America for this important national holiday. For more information, call Southwest Harbor Public Library at 244-7065.Find out more »
