Today Is The Last Day To Register For Nov. 4 Election

Today is the final day to register to vote before the November election. Officials encourage voters to have their paperwork in by the regular registration deadline.

But those who miss it are not completely out of luck. Grace period registration and voting starts tomorrow and runs longer up to and including Election Day.

This spring, legislators approved online voter registration, which entails visiting the State Board of Elections website and providing information like name, address, the last four digits of a social security number, and a driver's license number.

Those who are registered don't have to wait until then to vote. Absentee ballots can be obtained without giving a reason.

Early voting begins Oct. 20.
