With the 2020 election in full swing, Tuesday is the day when every American is reminded to do their civic duty.

Tuesday, September 24 is National Voter Registration Day.

Why vote? Consider these seven reasons.

Every fourth Tuesday in September is dedicated to let potential voters know how and where they can register to vote in upcoming elections.

The unofficial holiday was started back in 2012 in effort to get more people to poles.

According to the National Day calendar, more than 300,000 Americans registered to vote on the inaugural national voter registration day.
