Mayor Jim Strickland encouraged Memphians to register to vote today, which is National Voter Registration Day.

To register online, visit this site.

“Voting is simply part of who we are as Americans, Tennesseans, and Memphians,” Mayor Strickland said. “It’s vitally important that everyone register to vote to make their voices heard. And, if you think you’re already registered to vote, take a moment to double check just to make sure you’re not surprised when you head to the polls.”

As part of Mayor Strickland’s commitment to increase voter registration awareness among younger Memphians, members of the Memphis Youth City Council will be promoting awareness at their respective schools and members of the Memphis Ambassadors Program will be promoting registration at community centers.

Strickland is part of the Mayors For Our Lives group of mayors, who are raising awareness of voter registration today in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

The Shelby County Election Commission is also holding drive-through voter registration events from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at the following locations:

  • Audubon Park (enter through Perkins)
  • Heroes Park, 4580 Riverdale Road
  • Douglass Park, 1616 Ash Road
  • Polly Williams Park, 3888 Auburn Road
  • Oakhaven Park, 3875 Bishops Bridge Road
  • Charjean Park, 2601 Ketchum Road
  • Johnson Road Park, 2940 Johnson Road

At these events, citizens can check to see if they are registered, change an address or update other information if needed.

Citizens can also look up that information online here.

The last day to register to vote to be eligible for the November election is Oct. 9.
