Election Day is more than a month away, but officials are working to get people into the voting booths.
National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday put those efforts front and center.
As a part of National Voter Registration Day, the state Multicultural Affairs Office held a registration drive at 300 S. Rio Grande St., Salt Lake City. The office developed a partnership with the Lieutenant Governor’s Election Office. Through the Multicultural Affairs Office, Director Claudia Nakano said, the state hopes to get more minorities to participate in upcoming elections, as well as be eligible voters in general.
