The Wilton League of Women Voters reminds everyone that Tuesday, September 24th is National Voter Registration Day. It is a day to celebrate our democracy, opportunities, and rights. Many Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, fail to update registration, or are unsure how to register to vote. Voting is a prized civic duty.
