Tuesday, Sept. 20 is National Voter Registration Day, the nationwide effort to get Americans to register to vote ahead of the Nov. 8 election.
The nonpartisan civic holiday was first observed in 2012, and it aims to create awareness around voter registration for those who may not otherwise do it.
President Joe Biden gave a proclamation from the White House on Monday, calling the right to vote the "foundation of our democracy," and he asked all eligible Americans to make sure their voter registration is up to date and for them to encourage friends, family and neighbors to do the same.
If you're looking to register to vote, look no further. Here's how to make sure your voice is heard this November.
