Bloomfield Civil Rights Commission to Host Youth Voter Registration Day at Bloomfield Public Library, 5/16


The Bloomfield Civil Rights Commission and the Bloomfield Public Library will be co-hosting a Youth Voter Registration Day on Wednesday, May 16 from 2:00 – 4:00pm in the Bloomfield Public Library courtyard, at 90 Broad Street, Bloomfield.

“I commend the Bloomfield Civil Rights Commission for organizing this voter registration drive, and am excited to be participating. Being an active voter means being a participant in democracy, so I encourage people of all ages who are not registered yet to come join us on Wednesday,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “I would like to thank the Bloomfield Public Library for hosting this great event, and many other community-minded events throughout the year.”

To register to vote you must: be at least 17 years old and turn 18 before the November election; be a U.S. Citizen; and have a driver’s license with photo, student ID with photo or the last 4 digits of your social security number, when you register.
