Thumbnail Img 6895Held on the last Tuesday of September, volunteers nationwide hit the streets for a day of coordinated registration efforts. The event’s goal is to make sure everyone who is eligible to vote has the opportunity.

“We figured it was a service we should offer to the community – you know, we’re a community hub and we want to make sure that everybody is taking part in our community and this seemed like a good way to do that,” says Carrie Bond, a librarian at the Rapid City Public Library who volunteers to man the event.

If you missed Tuesday’s event,  you can always register at your county Auditor’s office.
