African American Voter Registration, Education, & Participation Project

Increasing African American and urban voter registration, education, and participation through outreach to targeted communities in California. We've registered over 200,000 voters and counting since 2002!

National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday

African American Voter REP has been registering voters in our community since 2002, and we’ve registered over 175,000 people and counting! We’re excited to be part of a national effort to register voters around the country on September 23, 2014, also known as National Voter Registration Day. This is well ahead of the October 20th registration deadline for voting in California’s next elections on November 4th, so it’s great timing.

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.

Why vote in 2014? Four hundred and seventy-one congressional seats, 36 governors, and 46 state legislatures are among the many decisions on the ballots in this year’s midterm elections. Critical issues will be on the ballot in California as well, including propositions 46 and 47. 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.

Register to vote today on our website, learn more about the day at and use #CelebrateNVRD on social media to spread the word!

We’re really excited about being able to join hundreds of groups across America for this important national holiday. Be sure to sign up for our email list to get a reminder on Tuesday.
