Today is Voter Registration Day in the Town of Carrboro, as proclaimed by Mayor Lydia Lavelle.
“I ask all citizens in Carrboro to make your voting plan,” Mayor Lavelle said. “This means making certain you are properly registered to vote; deciding whether you are going to vote with an absentee ballot, early vote, or vote on Election Day; and then exercising that precious right to vote that so many have fought for and continue to fight for.”
The local observance coincides with National Voter Registration Day, first observed in 2012. It has been recognized annually on the fourth Tuesday of September to celebrate democracy and encourage people to participate in the democratic process.
Voting is a fundamental freedom that is enshrined in our Constitution; for many, it is a right that is accepted without question or concern; for others, it is a right that was gained through generations of struggle and persistent vigilance to ensure that it is not eroded or lost.
