National Voter Registration Day – September 28, 2021
National Voter Registration Day is a nation-wide coordinated effort organized to ensure that every eligible voter can vote. On September 28th volunteers from Chippewa Valley Votes, a non-partisan group, will spread out across Eau Claire to register voters, provide information about polling places, and assist residents in verifying their voter registration information. Chippewa Valley Votes, as well as other regional organizations, will have voter registration booths set up at several venues where knowledgeable volunteers will be on hand to work with anyone who needs help registering to vote, or verifying their registration status. This is the third year that Chippewa Valley Votes has engaged the Eau Claire community in National Voter Registration Day activities. Locations include:
- LE Phillips Public Library at their temporary location, 2725 Mall Dr, Eau Claire, from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
- Community Table, 320 Putnam St., Eau Claire, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

- Chippewa Valley Votes is providing services to all Eau Claire County public high schools.
Individuals are welcome to visit any of these sites and advised to bring their WI driver’s license or WI photo ID card if possible.
In Eau Claire County alone, over 25,000 eligible voters are not currently registered to vote. Carol Craig, event co-coordinator for Chippewa Valley Votes, says, “We’re here to help. Our goal is to make sure every eligible voter has what they need to participate in elections. Our volunteers are trained to get people registered and ready to vote. We believe every voter deserves a voice.” CVV will provide other voter registration opportunities throughout the year.
