Last day to register to vote in 2016 presidential election

- Time is running out for people who want to register to vote in Texas for the November election.

To do so, prospective voters must pick up or print out a voter registration application, fill it out and drop it off or mail it to their county’s election department. The application must be received or postmarked by the end of the Tuesday.

People in Tarrant County were bumper to bumper to get into the parking lot and march into the voter registration office to take their place at the counter to register.

Some people moved and are transferring their voter registration to a different county, while others are voting for the first time.

“I want to make a difference,” said Maria Delango, a first-time voter. “I don't want something to go wrong in the White House."

“Everybody needs to vote this election,” said Clarice Grantt, a registered voter. “It's a dire situation going on here."

Those who didn't come in person mailed in their voter registration forms. It's not unusual to see people hurry in on the last day of voter registration.
