On September 22, 2015, we celebrate National Voter Registration Day by registering voters at Good Hope Marketplace on Alabama Ave, SE between 10:00 am - Noon and 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm. In 2008, 6 million Americans didn't vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn't know how to register. We want to make sure no one in the District of Columbia is left out. We have a lot of work to do to ensure that every eligible DC resident is registered and ready to vote in 2016. We will need your help. Please join us on September 22.
