“With the important elections this upcoming November, it is important to remind people that democracy is not a spectator sport. The Framingham League of Women Voters’ mission is to encourage an informed and active electorate,” said Stephanie Deeley, President of Framingham chapter. “We are proud to partner with our local small businesses, non-profits, schools, libraries and the Sudbury LWV chapter, in registering people to vote.”

The Framingham League of Women Voters is holding voter registration events throughout our community at the following locations and times:

Re-established in 2017, the League of Women Voters of Framingham is a nonpartisan grassroots organization. We encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.

Founded in 2012, National Voter Registration Day 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. More than two million Americans have registered to vote on this day since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day
