In 2021, the annual "National Voter Registration Day" is September 28. This day was created in 2012 to be a nonpartisan rallying point to help eligible voters across America register to vote. Since then, nearly 4.5 million citizens have registered to vote on this annual designated day to register.
This includes the record-breaking 1.5 million who registered on this day in 2020. On this annual day to register, voters are reached who may not register otherwise. National Voter Registration Day will provide election officials and civic-minded community partners an opportunity to raise awareness of the responsibility to register to vote.
This is "getting out the vote." To register to vote in Bullock County, you must be a U.S. citizen and an Alabama resident 18 years of age or older. If you are already registered to vote, make sure your information is correct with the Bullock County Registrar's office.
It is located in the Bullock County Courthouse in downtown Union Springs. This board is composed of members: Suzanne Johnson, Chairman; Barbara McLaurine, and Doris Roten.
