National Voter Registration Day
is September 22.
The Bus Project is joining over 2,000 organizations around the country who are heeding President Barack Obama’s call to celebrate the fourth annual National Voter Registration Day.
Here’s how we’re celebrating.
The NVRD Celebration Afterparty (7pm-9:30pm) will be generously hosted by our pals at the Community Cycling Center at their warehouse space on 1805 NE 2nd, near the Moda Center and the Lloyd District in Northeast Portland. (Near TriMet buses 4, 44, 6, 17, and the Eastside Streetcar). We’ll listen to Portland band New Zoos, take your photo at our photobooth (#celebratingNVRD!), and give you a chance to high five VoteBot as we eagerly tally the day’s results to see how many cards we registered across the state.
Big shoutouts to our generous hosts and food donors including Voodoo Doughnut, Einstein Bagels, Southland Whiskey Kitchen, Hot Lips Soda, Lagunitas Brewing, Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider, Good Neighbor Pizzeria, Flying Pie Pizzeria, Mississippi Pizza, and Por Que No.
Voter Registration Drives at Aloha, Beaverton, Catlin Gabel, Cleveland, Corvallis, Crescent Valley, De La Salle North Catholic, Grant, International School of Beaverton, Jesuit, Lake Oswego, Lakeridge, Lincoln, Oregon Episcopal School, Southridge, St. Mary’s, Sunset, Valley Catholic, Westview, Wilson, and Woodburn High Schools, with special help from dedicated, inspiring high school interns through our partnership with the Junior States of America.
Voter Registration Drives at Concordia, University of Portland, Reed, Lewis and Clark, Pacific University, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and Warner Pacific, working with student governments, rad professors, Politicorps Alumni and volunteers brave enough to wear the Vote Bot costume and walk around with a clipboard on their own campus.
