TurboVote reminds Americans to get out and vote

Posted: Updated:

It's National Voter Registration Day and some local college students will be out with a way to make sure their classmates and even you don't miss out on voting come November.

All of Virginia's four year public colleges with just two exceptions are taking part in TurboVote. Virginia Military Institute and University of Virginia Wise are not participating.

Once you sign up, you can register to vote if you are not already registered. Turbo Vote will send absentee ballots from the locality in which you are registered directly to you so if you're away for college, working or traveling, you won't forget.

TurboVote will also send you reminders via email or text to keep you on top of deadlines so you won't miss elections.

Anyone 18 or older can register, for free.

Virginia Tech Student Government Association President Brent Ashley says Virginia Tech has its own link for students to sign up through a partnership of TurboVote, Virginia Tech Student Government Association, and Virginia 21.
