Michelle Obama, Chris Paul, Liza Koshy and More Call on Americans to Register to Vote Ahead of 2024 Presidential Election
When We All Vote released a video featuring celebrity talent on National Voter Registration Day, encouraging Americans to register and make their voices heard at the ballot box
Today, on National Voter Registration Day, When We All Vote released a video message from When We All Vote Co-Chairs Michelle Obama, Chris Paul, Liza Koshy and Bretman Rock calling on Americans to get registered and ready to vote ahead of local and state elections happening this year and the 2024 presidential election. In the video, When We All Vote’s Co-Chairs ask viewers to celebrate National Voter Registration Day by checking their voter registration status at weall.vote/check and ensuring their communities do the same.
This week, When We All Vote volunteers and partners are joining in to register voters in their communities. Volunteers across the country are hosting voter registration events as a part of the organization’s National Voter Registration Week of Action. Partners supporting voter registration efforts this week include: Change.org, Tumblr, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., NExT Philadelphia, League of Women Voters of Philadelphia, Top Ladies of Distinction Baltimore, North Alabama Votes and more.
In celebration of National Voter Registration Day, When We All Vote is calling on people to:
- Register to vote or check their voter registration status at vote/check (it only takes a few minutes).
- Build their #VotingSquad by texting or DMing three friends and family members and asking them to check their voter registration status too.
- Volunteer in their community by signing up here.
In 2023, voters in Mississippi, Kentucky, and Louisiana are all electing governors; voters in Columbus, Savannah, Durham and more are electing mayors; and in Virginia, all 40 seats in the Senate and all 100 seats in the House are up for election. Despite the important local elections happening across the country, in years like this one, turnout can be extremely low. This National Voter Registration Day, and throughout the Week of Action, When We All Vote is committed to reaching eligible voters and ensuring they are ready to make their voices heard in each and every election.
