National Voters Registration Day

Tuesday, September 25, is National Voter Registration Day.

You can register to vote and update your voter registration information  at Northwestern High School Learning Commons all day during open hours.

Reasons to Register:

  • You will turn 18 by Election Day
  • You are a newly naturalized citizen
  • You moved, even if it is just across town (most common reason for voter confusion)
  • You changed your name
  • You haven’t voted in a while (in which case your registration may have been removed due to inactivity)

Stop by during open hours to register to vote on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. Look for the voter registration table or ask library staff for assistance.

Visit Indiana Voters to register, check your voting status, see who is on the ballot, find out your polling place, and more!

Summer Library Hours
For those students who like to plan ahead, the English teachers will be allowing regular freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to earn AR points for their 1st semester English classes. If you are an honor student, you should check with your English teacher about any reading you can do to get ahead over the summer.  Obviously, you should choose books in your current reading level.  Don’t ask how many points you’ll need because each teacher is different, but you CAN get a head start and accumulate some points over the summer!   Mrs. Longgood will have the library  open from 11-3 on June 6 & 17, July 1 & 15 and Aug 8th  so that students can come in to check out books and take AR quizzes over the summer!
