With more than a month left before the much-anticipated presidential elections, thousands of organizations across the country teamed up today to host events to get people registered to vote.

Today marks National Voter Registration Day. The League of Women Voters that services the South Bay also encouraged people to register to vote.

In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed the registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. You can register to vote online, by mail, or in person. The deadline is Monday, Oct. 24.

You can call your county elections office to have a voter form sent to you or you can pick up a form from various local offices in your community like public libraries, government offices, post offices, and even the DMV.
