Thanks to our partners across the country, AAI celebrated another successful National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) this week. Taking place on the fourth Tuesday of September each year since 2012, NVRD is a national holiday that mobilizes thousands of volunteers at hundreds of events to register, or update the registrations of, hundreds of thousands of Americans. As a proud Premier Partner, AAI has worked with volunteers in nearly every state throughout the years to execute #YallaVote voter registration events to register many individuals annually. This year saw #YallaVote events at a variety of venues, including college campuses, at local Arab American organization meetings, businesses, and even at local city halls through partnerships with clerks’ offices. The preliminary voter registration numbers from our partners are shaping up to make this year’s NVRD one of the biggest yet. And as the last NVRD before the 2020 Census, the efforts of our partners were vital to spreading information about #YallaCountMeIn, the Arab American community’s Get Out the Count campaign, and the importance of the census to our democracy. These combined efforts to engage more individuals in democratic processes was met with great enthusiasm, and we want to thank every person, organization, school, and city that participated and made NVRD 2019 a success. And if missed out on NVRD and are still not registered, we can help! Give us a call at 844-YALLA-US
