National LGBTQ+ Voter Registration Day is sponsored and supported by: The Equality Business Alliance of San Diego and Tijuana, and the International Imperial Court System.
National LGBTQ Voter Registration Day encourages organizations to help ensure individuals are prepared and ready to vote this coming November by creating their own voter registration drive or encouraging eligible voters to follow simple steps online to register to vote. Registering to vote takes just a few minutes and is free to register.
Founded by Eddie Reynoso and first observed in 2020, National LGBTQ Voter Registration Day was established as a response to a report by UCLA's Williams Institute, which found that nearly half (46.9%) of all registered LGBTQ voters did not cast a vote in the 2016 Presidential General Election. Further the report found that 21% of all eligible LGBTQ adults is not registered to vote.
National LGBTQ Voter Registration Day is observed annually on the third Tuesday of September.
