September 24th is National Voter Registration Day. Mason County Elections and the League of Women Voters of Mason County are partnering to give all eligible citizens the opprotunity to get registered to vote before the November 5th General Election. League volunteers will be available on that Tuesday in various locations to register new voters, update registrations and answer question about registration and voting.
Registration tables will be available at the following locations:
- Mason Transit Authority Community Center in Shelton from 10 AM to 6 PM
- North Mason Timberland Library in Belfair from 10:30 Am to 4:30 PM
- Hoodsport Timberland Library from 12:30 PM to 2 PM
- William G. Reed Library in Shelton from 11 AM to 6 PM
- The Johnson Library at Olympic College Shelton from 9:30 AM to 1 PM
Additionally, everyone is welcome to participate in the League’s first ever “Apple Poll.” The Apple Poll gives Mason County residents an informal and fun weigh-in on what they consider to be the most important issues.
National Voter Registration Day is a national holiday celebrating our democracy. It was first observed in 2012 and has been growing in popularity every year since.
