2017 National Voter Registration Day -
On September 26, the League of Women Voters of Wilmette will create several pop-up locations throughout the Village to register voters and share information on election reminders, online registration verification, voting by mail, address changes, early voting, and more.
This is a day to set aside differences and celebrate the rights and opportunities we all share. The promotion and protection of voters’ rights is a core mission of the national League of Women Voters and the local chapter is proud to participate.
In 2016, over 3500 partner organizations and 10,000 volunteers helped 750,000 voters use National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states.

Across the village, League deputy registrars will provide voter services at the following locations:
