Greenville NC: Today is National Voter Registration Day, a nonpartisan civic holiday held every fourth Tuesday of September dedicated to helping register voters and educating Americans on the voting process of mail-in ballots, early voting options, and other important election deadlines.
The Association of Mexicans in North Carolina, Inc. (AMEXCAN) is participating in the National Voter Registration day by calling all citizens, especially those in the Hispanic and Latino community, to register to vote.
“Historically, the Hispanic and Latino community has been oppressed and ignored in the United States. This upcoming election is the time that Hispanics and Latinos use their vote as their voice and speak up for their rights of citizens of this nation. Voting is not only their right but their civic duty,” says Director of AMEXCAN Juvencio Rocha-Peralta.
North Carolina offers online voter registration to existing customers of N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles, or you can register to vote by mail by printing a North Carolina Voter Registration Application or National Voter Registration Form and mail the completed application to your local election office. You can also register to vote in person at your county board of elections office, or at the North Carolina Board of Elections (https://www.ncsbe.gov/registering/how-register) website, which offers a Spanish version of the application.
Once again, AMEXCAN urges and encourages all eligible voters to register today and to vote on November 3rd. Hispanics, and Latinos, let the country hear your voice, let the nation see your numbers, make your vote count, and speak up for your community. It all starts with registering to vote!
