Sept. 27 marks National Voter Registration Day

Today marked National Voter Registration Day, and the time to make the Oct. 14 deadline is running out. 



To ensure that voters are registered, Hostos Community College hosted a voter registration drive Tuesday. Voter registration desks were set up inside and outside of the campus to alert the student body and others of the importance of voting. 



Social media platforms like Twitter promoted the day by launching a campaign to remind U.S. citizens to vote. After doing so, Twitter says people let everyone know they registered by using #Iregistered. 



Facebook and Google also launched similar initiatives on their sites.



Volunteers, celebrities and organizations from all over the country planned to hit the streets to promote voter registration campaigns.
