National Voter Education Week (NVEW) is an open-source, nonpartisan voter education campaign held the first week of October that equips voters with the tools, information, and confidence they need to cast their ballots. NVEW is a resource hub for leaders of any community and context who want to give their networks the information they need to cast their ballot with confidence.  During this week of interactive education, voters learn to find their polling location, understand their ballot, make a plan to vote in person or by mail, and more. 

Launched in 2020, NVEW works in conjunction with the other Civic Holidays to help guide voters through the entire voter engagement process – from registration to turnout – in fun and creative ways.

Thomas Memorial Library is proud to be a National Voter Education Week partner.
