Today is National Voter Registration Day, a day dedicated to get voters across the country registered ahead of the November elections.

Groups in Tulsa, Tahlequah and Cleveland are helping state residents register to vote as well as increasing voter participation.  In November, voters will decide on a number of issues and races including voting for a new governor.

If you're not registered to vote and want to cast a ballot in November election, you must register by October 12th.

Thousands of national, state, and local organizations and volunteers are the driving force behind National Voter Registration Day.
