The League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha will be out in force on Tuesday, September 22nd. That is National Voter Registration Day and Director of Voter Services Ann Chalson says they will be setting up information booths at a number of locations throughout the Omaha metro and will have people on hand to help with the registration process.
Chalson says, “Registrations have dropped off over last few years and it is important we get that back up. Then our next important push will be to make sure the people that are registered are informed voters and get out and vote. That is when it really counts.”
Representatives with the League of Women Voters will be at the Creative Center Art College, Nebraska Methodist College of Nursing and Allied Health, at the UNO Milo Bail Student Center, the South Omaha Library and at two Metropolitan Community College locations. Those registering to vote in person need to provide a Social Security number, be a resident of Nebraska and a citizen.
Chalson says this year is very special in Nebraska because September 22nd is the first day residents can register to vote online. Those doing so will need either a valid Nebraska driver’s license or a state identification card.
