Residents of Virginia and Maryland who want to vote in the midterm elections have less than a week to register.
Both states have deadlines next Tuesday. That's also the deadline for updating voter registration information.
Anyone who will be 18 years or older by Election Day, Nov. 2, is eligible to vote.
In Virginia, residents can register to vote at any of the 74 Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles customer service centers or at the 57 DMV Select locations or at their local registrar's office. Assistance is also available by calling the board of elections at 800-552-9745.
Maryland residents must hand-deliver registrations or mail them to their local election board. Hand-delivered applications must be received by next Tuesday at 9 p.m. Mailed applications must be postmarked by Oct. 12.
Maryland voter registration applications are available at local boards of elections, Motor Vehicle Administration offices, public institutions of higher education, marriage license bureaus, post offices, public libraries, the State Board of Elections, and online at www.elections.state.md.us.
Virginia residents can check their status and polling places at www.sbe.virginia.gov.
