ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Election Day is less than one month away and the deadline to register is quickly approaching.

Any one who wants to register or make changes to existing voter registration records must do it before 5 p.m. on Monday, October 17.

The November election will be the first general election where some in the city of Roanoke may have to go to a new precinct. Last year, the city reduced the number from 32 to 21. By law, voters can only vote in the precinct in which they are registered.
