DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on National Voter Registration Day

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in recognition of National Voter Registration Day, September 24:

“The right to vote is a defining feature of democracy, one that gives every citizen equal power in determining those who will represent them in government. Every year, National Voter Registration Day serves as a reminder of the importance of registering to vote, so that on Election Day you can go to the polls, cast your ballot and make your voice heard."

“Today there will be thousands of dedicated volunteers in the field, helping citizens take advantage of their rights as Americans. For those who don’t encounter one of those volunteers, remember that you can get information about registering online at

“The Democratic Party will continue to work to protect voting rights and oppose barriers like voter-ID laws that prevent too many Americans from casting a ballot. We know that the more people vote, the more certain we all can be that our government is truly ‘of the people, by the people, for the people.’”
