If you want a chance to weigh in on what many are calling the most important election in our lifetime, the deadline to register for the Nov. 4 election is Monday, Oct. 6.

Sponsored by Students for a Better Society and Democracy Matters, voter registration cards will be available for students throughout this week at the Mane Desk on the main floor of Hughes-Trigg Student Center. If you haven’t registered yet, stop by anytime Monday through Wednesday from 7 a.m. to midnight or Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. No postage required.

Early voting is Oct. 20 – 31. You must vote in your precinct on election day, but during early voting you can vote at any location. If you forget your voter registration card, you can use a valid identification to vote.

For first-time voters with questions on how to get started or what to do once you’re registered, check out this site for more information.
