Today is National Voter Registration Day! Are you registered to vote? Do you know how to register to vote? Well, today is your day to find out, especially before the November elections.

Established in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is an effort to get as many people as possible registered to vote before upcoming elections. There are several businesses that have pledged to help with the effort, like Footlocker who will have voter registration kiosks at their over 2,000 locations according to The Hill.

Facebook and Instagram have registered 2.5 million people which is over halfway to their goal of 4 million according to USA Today. Twitter is joining in today too, by having a voter registration prompt at the top of your timeline, as well as notifications.

If you want to make sure you're prepared in November, here are the two simple steps you need to take.
