National Voter Registration Day started in 2012 to ensure Americans don’t miss out on voting in November general elections.

The National Voter Registration Day website asserts that as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote.

Voter turnout in the Sept. 14 primary election for Cleveland mayor was just over 16 percent.
