LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) -In an effort to increase voter turnout, TAMIU will host a series of events aimed at promoting voter registration.

On Tuesday morning, volunteers were helping students, administrators, and others to sign up during TAMIU’s annual National Voter Registration event but this time it was a drive-thru that was open to the public.
Volunteer Deputy Registrars were on-site to assist individuals in filling out their voter registration form.
Drive-thru attendees remained in their vehicles at all times and used a face covering.
Individuals are encouraged to bring their own black pen.
The election is less than two months away, so make sure you’re registered to vote.
The requirements are to be a U.S citizen and have proper ID to show proof.
The deadline to register. is October 5th.
