Chattanoogans in Action for Love, Equality and Benevolence will be hosting a nonpartisan celebration for National Voter Registration Day at East Lake Park, 3000 E 34th St., on Sept. 19 from 4-7 p.m.
This is the last National Voter Registration Day before the Hamilton County and residential primaries. CALEB will host its first annual celebration in East Lake and looks forward to participation in the community. There will be tables for voter registration, assistance for anyone who needs to restore their voting rights, food, music, games and other community resources.
Admission is free and the event is open to all ages.
Since 2012, more than 5 million Americans have registered to vote on National Voter Registration Day, including 1.5 million in 2020 alone.
CALEB is an institutional coalition of faith communities, labor unions, nonprofits and community leaders working together to build power to affect change in Chattanooga, Hamilton County and Tennessee. The work is led by volunteers and supported by a handful of staff organizers.
CALEB believes in local people having a public say in how our communities are funded, developed, and managed. Registering people to vote, getting them to the polls and restoring their voter rights are all an extension of its model and values through Integrated Voter Engagement. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. As a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrated every September, National Voter Registration Day seeks to make sure each one of these Americans has the opportunity to make sure they’re registered to vote before their next election.
