The League of Women Voters of DeKalb County is coordinating local National Voter Registration Day events for Tuesday.
Founded in 2012, National Voter Registration Day – Sept. 24 – is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote. Last year, more than 800,000 Americans registered on National Voter Registration Day.
The league is joining with other local partners, such as the All In Democracy Challenge on the Northern Illinois University campus; the public libraries in DeKalb, Sandwich, Cortland and Sycamore; Kishwaukee College; and even a private citizen who donated a venue to provide voter registration opportunities.
Citizens can register to vote Tuesday at the following locations:
• Cortland Community Library, 3 to 9 p.m.
• DeKalb Public Library, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
• Sandwich Public Library, noon to 5 p.m.
• Sycamore Public Library, 4 to 8 p.m.
• Former Elks Lodge, 105 N. First St., DeKalb, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.
• Kishwaukee College, 9 to 11 a.m.
• NIU’s MLK Commons, 11 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.
