UTAH WOMEN'S VOTER REGISTRATION DAY

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

Saturday, February 13, 2021

8:00am - 2:15PM

TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON!

Celebrate the second-annual Utah Women's Voter Registration Day with a virtual conference made for and led by women!

Utah Women's Voter Registration Day was created to bring attention to the past and current electoral engagement of women. On February 14th, 1870, the first woman in the U.S. under equal suffrage laws cast a vote in Salt Lake City, Utah. Fast-forward to today, where, according to U.S. Census data, there are over 316,000 Utah women who are eligible but not registered to vote. 

2019: VOTERISE introduced House Concurrent Resolution 16 to the Utah Legislature to create a Utah Women's Voter Registration Day- the first of its kind in the nation. HCR016 passed unanimously by both chambers and was signed into law by Governor Herbert.

2020: To celebrate the first anniversary of this new holiday on February 14th, we held a kick-off press conference with female elected officials, organized 15 voter registration drives around Utah, and registered 763 voters! 

Now it's 2021.

And if the last year taught us anything, it's that we can adapt.

Join us this year as we celebrate the second-annual Utah Women's Voter Registration Day by attending the half-day virtual conference, complete with Utah women leading panels and discussing issues important and relevant to our community of intelligent, strong, game-changing women.

TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON!
