A Proclamation on National Voter Registration Day, 2022

The right to vote is the foundation of our democracy — it defines us as Americans and serves as the cornerstone of our liberty

With it, anything is possible in America; without it, nothing i

t is a legacy passed down by our greatest leaders — a legacy which provides each one of us with a voice in the creation of a better Nation

It is the source of our power as citizens, our mightiest tool of social transformation

Our Nation has not always lived up to its promise of equal access to the right to vote

From Seneca Falls, New York, to Selma, Alabama, to Washington, D.C. — and across America

I have hereunto set my hand this nineteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-seventh.
