Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day: What Arizonans need to know

Tuesday is a good day to register to vote, if you have not already done it.

Every fourth Tuesday in September is National Voter Registration Day. This year it falls on Sept. 22.

National Voter Registration Day was created as an awareness campaign. It was first observed in 2012. More than 300,000 Americans registered that year.

The day is supposedly timed to happen a few months before some of the bigger elections of the year.

Of course, in 2020 we have a presidential election along with several important races across the nation.
