We’re excited to be part of a national effort to strengthen our democracy by registering voters on this year’s National Voter Registration Day, which will take place on September 28, 2021.
First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan holiday that involves thousands of organizations and volunteers working together to ensure their staff, family, clients, friends, program participants and neighbors are registered to vote and ready to cast a ballot. National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.
Here’s some important voting information for you to know this fall:Today, we invite you to register to vote and learn more at NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org and use #NationalVoterRegistrationDay and #VoteReady on social media to spread the word!

- Massachusetts is a no-excuse mail-in voting state. You can click here to print the application to vote by mail, and then you can deliver your application to your local election office. They will send you a ballot, which you must fill out and return to cast your ballot.
Once you’ve registered and applied to vote, reach out to remind your colleagues, clients, consumers, friends and family to do the same! If you work in residential care, help those you support apply as well. Voting isn’t just a civic duty – it also makes a difference for human services. Politicians can see whether you’ve voted in the past, and often check when you reach out to them about issues you care about.
