Three Reasons to Celebrate National Voter Registration Day
The League of Women Voters is celebrating National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 26 because:
□ Registering and voting is the best way for each of us to decide what happens in our country. Health care. The environment. Immigration. Our place in the world. It all comes down to the people we elect. Eager to make a difference? Start by becoming a loud and proud supporter of voter registration!
□ The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties registers voters at many events during each year. Add that to the efforts of other Leagues across the United States and it means that from coast to coast, more people can participate in the decision making and many people hear our message that voter registration is important.
□ Join LWV and help us with voter registration. And, even if you can't help, you can help publicize in social media, encourage people you know to get registered or update their address, and spread the word about resources for voters like http://www.vote411.org. The National League of Women Voters has more info here.

Communicating Effectively With Your Representative
On the subject of action alerts, here are some helpful tips on how to contact your representatives effectively from the Jefferson County League's newsletter:
A quick telephone call to your representative is easiest. Most legislators count calls supporting or opposing bills and those from their own constituents count the most.
Email is another good way to communicate with your legislator. Here are some tips to communicate your position to your representative:
□ State the bill number in the subject line
□ Keep the email short and to the point
□ If you have a personal story relevant to the issue, include it
□ Use bullets when possible to make it more readable
