Representatives Long and Castor Introduce Bipartisan National Voter Registration Day Resolution

Today, Representative Long (MO-07) and Representative Castor (FL-14) introduced a bipartisan resolution recognizing September 28, 2021, as National Voter Registration Day.

“Voting is the backbone of our democracy. When people vote, they are doing their civic duty to elect people who will best represent them at all levels of government. Voting gives the people the power to change policy, build better communities, and hold government officials accountable. I am proud to co-lead this resolution with my colleague as getting people to vote is crucial to ensuring that our democracy lives on. On National Voter Registration Day, I encourage all Americans that aren’t registered to vote to register today,” said Rep. Long

“I am honored to introduce the bipartisan National Voter Registration Day resolution with Rep. Long to reaffirm Congress’ shared commitment to our bedrock democratic values. A strong democracy and exercising one’s fundamental right to vote should not be a partisan issue. Public participation in American elections ensures that our nation’s grand experiment can continue, and I encourage all of our neighbors, here in Tampa and across the nation, to take time today to register to vote today and encourage friends and family members to do the same,” said Rep. Castor.
