Register to vote today! Here’s how to do it
You can register online, by mail, or in person
Election Day is fast approaching this November 6, and many of us are excited to cast our ballots and vote for our favorite candidates. But before you can actually vote, you need to register first (unless you're from North Dakota — lucky!).
For most people, the deadline to register to vote is TODAY. So if you haven't registered to vote already, here's how.
First, go to this website and select the state where you live. This website will tell you how you can register to vote. Most states let you register online, but 12 states (including New Jersey, Texas, and North Carolina) don't offer online registration. Make sure to check what your state offers!
If you want to register online, then all you have to do is get out your driver's license, ZIP code, and Social Security number and fill out an online form. If you want to register by mail, then you have to print out the voter registration form, fill it out, and mail it to your state. If you don't want to do either of those things, you can also register in person at the county voter registration office. You fill out the paper application in person, hand it to a clerk, and then receive a voter registration card in the mail.
Every state's deadline for registration is different, so make sure to check them here! The deadlines are also different by method — so if you happen to miss the deadline for registering by mail, you can usually register online or in person at a later date. Again, make sure to check online.
The following states have voter registration deadlines today: Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.
Several states even allow in-person registration up to Election Day. If you live in DC, Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Vermont, Wisconsin, or Wyoming, then you can register in person anytime from now until November 6.
All registered to vote? Here's a list of states that allow early voting — so if you're feeling particularly eager, you can cast your vote before November 6.
Happy voting, everyone!

An Asian guy took an ancestry DNA test only to be told that he’s ‘100% Asian’
Surprise! You’re Asian!
by Nian Hu
Pretty much everyone I know has taken one of those ancestry DNA tests. And yeah, they're expensive but I can definitely see the appeal. The level of detail in the breakdowns — 56 percent Irish, 20 percent Balkan, 12 percent Iberian — isn't something you could get from a conversation with your grandma. And it's…
