National Voter Registration Day
On Sept. 27th, we celebrate democracy across the nation! It’s National Voter Registration Day!

Today is National Voter Registration Day, and as a governmental institution, we encourage you to register to vote on Nov. 8th – or to check and make sure your voter registration is up to date! The website above makes it easy for people anywhere to do so, but here are some more DC-area specific resources as well: 

Virginia voter information

Maryland voter information

DC voter information

Voting information for other states, including absentee ballots

Pro tip: make sure to visit your local Board of Elections website to find your polling place before the big day and to find out if you are eligible to cast your vote early and avoid the crowds! This year, multiple DC library locations are also serving as polling places on Nov. 8th – if that’s your polling place, make sure to check out a good book on the way out of the booth!


“You need me, but I don’t need you. I’m the Avatar.”


“I’m often asked for advice and I  almost always don’t give any. Because it doesn’t make sense, it’s horribly unfair, it’s impossible to plan your life, murderously difficult to get a mortgage or support a family and the uncertainty and the insecurity that it feeds you with, on a daily basis, can sometimes be asphyxiating.” {x}
