WASHINGTON (September 25, 2018) – With just six weeks remaining until the 2018 midterm election, today marks National Voter Registration Day in America. This morning, National Association of Realtors® President Elizabeth Mendenhall, a sixth-generation Realtor® from Columbia, Missouri and CEO of RE/MAX Boone Realty, called on America’s 1.3 million Realtors® to ensure they are registered to vote this November.
“An astounding 74 percent of Realtors® cast a vote in the 2016 national election. While that number certainly outpaces that of the general population, it is critical that the voices of even more Realtors® and consumers who care about home ownership and real estate investment are heard this Election Day. Improving upon the 85 percent of Realtors® currently registered could add nearly 200,000 voters to rolls across the country, and would guarantee the issues that matter most to the real estate industry remain a priority for America’s lawmakers. On September 25, NAR is urging all of our members – and every eligible adult in America – to ensure they are registered to vote this November.”
