Throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area Tuesday, organizations will recognize National Voter Registration Day with events to encourage eligible individuals to register for the 2020 election.
The day is recognized on the fourth Tuesday of September each year. Since 2012, about 3 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday. According to data from the Texas Secretary of State, during the March 2020 primaries the voting age population was 21,596,071 and about 75% were registered to vote.
Less than 13% of registered voters turned out to vote in the primaries.
An eligible voter must be a U.S. citizen and must be 18 years old by November 3, 2020. Individuals must present their Texas Identification number (Texas driver’s license or a Texas identification card) or the last four digits of their social security number.
