Katy Perry wants to make sure you know that today (Sept. 25) is National Voter Registration Day. Traditionally held on the fourth Tuesday of September, the day for voters to get their paperwork in order had a number of celebrities tweeting out reminders that it's not too late to get registered for the upcoming midterm elections.
The next election is just 41 days away on Nov. 6 -- and some states require voters to be registered 30 days before the election, so some of you have until next weekend to register.
The upcoming midterm is the first since Pres. Trump's election two years ago and will mark the first test of his ability to retain control of both the White House and Congress during his first term in office. More than six in 10 eligible Americans voted in the last presidential election, but less than four in 10 eligible voters participated in the last midterm elections. This means that control of the American government can and has been decided by a minority of voters, with twenty one percent of eligible voters not even registered.
