Our Commitment to Non-Partisan Voter Registration Activities
The EveryLibrary Institute’s voter registration efforts, under initiatives like "Libraries.Vote" and support for projects like National Voter Registration Day, are designed to help every eligible citizen register to vote, regardless of political affiliation, belief, or background. Our primary goal is to provide resources, training, and support to public libraries in accomplishing this civic mission, empowering them to serve as enablers of democracy by offering non-partisan voter registration assistance.
