    Maryland and Virginia residents who haven't registered to vote are running out of time to do so for November's election.

    The deadline is Tuesday.

    Residents with a Maryland driver's license or MVA-issued ID may register to vote, change their address or change their party affiliation online.

    Voters and members of the military, their spouses and dependents who are overseas and who do not have a Maryland driver's license or ID may also register or change their address or party affiliation online using different identifying information.

    Paper voter registration applications must be hand-delivered or mailed to the voter's local board of elections. A hand-delivered application must be received by the local board of elections by 9:00 p.m. Tuesday. A mailed application must be postmarked by Oct. 14.

    Virginia residents can also register to vote online, in person or by mail. Applications must be turned in or postmarked by Oct. 14. All general registrar offices in the commonwealth close at 5 p.m.
