Texas is making a push this month to register voters for the Nov. 6 General Election.
Secretary of State Hope Andrade is calling September National Voter Registration Month, and is urging Texans to take the first step in the voting process by registering.
"Voting is every Texans' opportunity to make their mark on Texas' future," Andrade said in a news release. The deadline to register is Oct. 9.
Early voting is open Oct. 22 through Nov. 2, and the deadline to request a ballot by mail is Oct. 30.
