ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — National Voter Registration Day is on Tuesday, September 28, so Rockford is holding an area-wide registration drive.
Deputy Registrars from the League of Women Voters Greater Rockford will have 15 locations throughout the Stateline where you can register to vote, including set ups in Belvidere, Cherry Valley, Roscoe, Rockton and Rockford.
“Your vote is your voice. You can complain and you can yell loud, but complaining and yelling loud is not necessarily going to influence policy,” said The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford’s Carol Davies. “The best thing to do is to use your vote to be able to let people know exactly how you feel about things.”
According to the league, 25% of eligible voters are not registered to vote.
The non-partisan civic holiday was established in 2012. To register, you have to be 18 on or before November 8th, 2004 and have two forms of identification.
