We're less than 60 days away from the general election, but if you want to vote, you have even less time to register.

The last day to register to vote for the November election is in two weeks, Monday, October 6th.

Some local county clerks say they're not seeing the usual voter registration increase during a presidential election year.

Election officials in at least one county are seeing an increase in young voters signing up.

The Floyd County Clerk says registration is skyrocketing among 18 year olds and other first time voters.

Floyd County election officials are pushing to get even more first time voters of all ages signed up between now and the sixth.

“They have a duty to help run this country the way it is supposed to ran, and the way it is supposed to be ran, is we vote, so they got an obligation to get out and do that,” Floyd County Clerk, Chris Waugh said.

Election officials say even if you don't want to cast a vote for a presidential candidate, there are still state and local races on the ballot to vote on.

If you haven't registered to vote, officials say it is easy.

All you have to do is go to your local county clerk's office before October 6th and fill out a card.

    I agree, out with the republicans and in with the new---democrats who care more about us than rich people and their companies.
