National Voter Registration Day aims to encourage greater participation in the democratic process by facilitating voter registration. The occasion is designed to create awareness about voter registration opportunities and to encourage more people, particularly those from underrepresented communities, to register.

The first National Voter Registration Day was held in 2012 and, since its inception, it has mobilized large numbers of volunteers and facilitated the registration of hundreds of thousands of voters across the country. A wide range of organizations participate in this initiative, from election offices and schools to businesses and non-profits, spreading the essential message of the importance of registering to vote and making one's voice heard.

Apart from assisting potential voters in the registration process, an important aspect of National Voter Registration Day includes education on the registration process and the provision of resources to navigate the process more easily. The goal is to ensure everyone can participate in the democratic process, irrespective of their background. National Voter Registration Day is typically marked by a high level of activity, both online and offline, with countless events organized nationwide. National Voter Registration Day takes place on the fourth Tuesday of September every year.
