Tuesday, September 26, 2017 – Lambda Theta Alpha Participates in National Voter Registration Day

WASHINGTON – For the fourth consecutive year, Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. is joining over 3,000 organizations nationwide for National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 26, 2017. Every election season, thousands of Americans forfeit their right to vote due to a missed deadline or lack of information on voter registration. As such, the sorority remains committed to ensuring our communities register to vote and make their voice heard.

Although it may not be a presidential election year, local elections directly impact our neighborhoods yet historically draw a smaller number of voters. In an effort to increase participation, the sorority’s Political Education Initiative Committee provided promotional materials to chapters across the country to organize local events. Over 40 chapters signed up to lead efforts in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.

Since 2012, over 1.4 million people have either registered to vote or updated their voter information as part of the initiative held every year on the fourth Tuesday in September. In 2016 alone, 750,000 registered through a National Voter Registration Day event.

Aligned with its mission to promote political activism, the sorority is proud to again partner with National Voter Registration Day. Engage on social media and use the hashtags #LTAPEI and #LTANVRD.
