The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House and the Rochester chapter of the League of Women Voters are partnering on Votes for All! – a one-day voter registration drive – on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, from 12pm – 4pm.
This event, in collaboration with National Voter Registration Day, seeks to register voters who have recently turned 18 or have recently moved, with a specific concentration on the Susan B. Anthony neighborhood.
Volunteers from the League of Women Voters will be available from 12pm – 4pm at the Anthony Museum for any and all who wish to register, update their current registration, or receive further information on voting. In addition, volunteers will be reaching out to local residents in the area through a door-to-door canvass.
The Anthony Museum will be open to visitors from 11am – 5pm for docent-led tours and special activities. A 20-minute presentation on the history and importance of voting will be presented at 1:30pm and 3pm in the Carriage House behind the museum’s Visitor Center.
National Voter Registration Day is a national effort to get as many people to register to vote as possible. The goal is not to advocate on behalf of a candidate or party, but to make sure that people have access to voting.
