Civic Holidays

Help your community get #VoteReady in 2024!

What are Civic Holidays?

Civic Holidays are nonpartisan days of action that strengthen and celebrate our country’s democracy! They bring together a wide range of organizations and communities in pursuit of an America where everyone participates and votes. Each holiday accounts for a different phase of democratic participation: registering to vote, making a plan, casting a ballot, and thanking the community members who make elections possible. Together, the Civic Holidays celebrate the entire voting experience.

Take part!

We are looking for partners of all stripes to participate in the Civic Holidays this year – campuses, nonprofits, businesses, election officials, community organizations, and more are encouraged to participate.  

You can get involved in a range of ways: holding nonpartisan events in your community, encouraging your community to share their voice through social media posts, encouraging early voting, and more.

National Voter Registration Day

First observed in 2012, over 5 million voters have registered to vote on National Voter Registration Day to date. As many as 1 in 5 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Help us change that by joining the country’s largest single-day voter registration drive and organizing a registration event in your community!

Vote Early Day

When Americans vote early, they ensure last-minute problems, long lines at the polls, confusing election laws, or voter disinformation cannot prevent us from casting our ballot. Vote Early Day is a tentpole moment for partners nationwide to engage with voters and empower them with the tools to cast their ballots early.
