Boost Mobile to register voters at 3,000 stores and online for National Voter Registration Day

 

By: Andrea Henderson, head of marketing, Boost Mobile

Leading up to National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 22, Boost Mobile is helping thousands of Americans register to vote ahead of the Nov. 3 general election, as part of our “Step Up to Vote” nonpartisan initiative.

The freedom to vote is a fundamental American right, and with National Voter Registration Day almost here, we want to register as many eligible voters as possible. While registration isn’t required in every state, all states have minimum requirements. Knowing those requirements and being prepared to vote is an important element of exercising our most basic rights.

Since launching Step Up to Vote in July, we’ve provided voting and local issue information at more than 3,000 participating Boost Mobile stores. Step Up to Vote also has helpful resources online at boostmobile.com/stepuptovote and on our social media channels (@boostmobile). To help reach voters, including first-time voters, the Step Up to Vote platform includes how and where to register; the latest news on elections and changes to voting processes directly from state officials; early voting details; and how to request an absentee or mail-in ballot (where applicable).

Community involvement is at the heart of Boost Mobile’s mission, and we have a strong legacy of supporting the communities we serve and empowering our customers. During the 2016 presidential election, with our "Boost Your Voice" campaign, we transformed Boost Mobile stores across the nation into polling stations to help communities eliminate obstacles such as long lines and traveling far from home. Step Up to Vote is about making it as easy as possible for every voice to be heard in this election, while supporting voters by providing credible and reliable nonpartisan information.

As many people around the world are denied the basic right to vote, National Voter Registration Day is a reminder of our core values as a country and should give us all something to cheer about. With state deadlines approaching, we hope Americans all over the nation will make an all-out effort to register and make a difference at the ballot box.

To register to vote and learn more about the Step Up to Vote campaign, visit boostmobile.com/stepuptovote or find a Boost Mobile store near you.
