September 24, 2018 - Mayor Tom Henry and his Youth Engagement Council will highlight the importance of National Voter Registration Day, which is Tuesday, Sept. 25.

As a member of the U.S. Conference Mayors, Mayor Henry is joining mayors from across the country, along with the League of Women Voters, the National Urban League, and the National Conference of State Legislatures to raise awareness and encourage young people to register to vote. The partners in this effort are recognized as nonpartisan organizations.

The Mayor’s Youth Engagement Council will discuss voter registration strategies and meet with Mayor Henry and members of the local League of Women Voters. The session will take place at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25 at Citizens Square.

“I’m encouraged by the national, state and local efforts to make voter registration a priority,” said Mayor Henry. “Public education and raising awareness about why it’s critical, especially for our youth, to exercise our right to vote can assist us in our commitment to work together to make a meaningful and lasting difference in Fort Wayne.”
