UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. _Politics is on the minds of many these days. Today our political process will be front and center because it is National Voter Registration Day.

Volunteers and organizations around St. Louis and across the country will be out today making sure people have the opportunity to register to vote.

National Voter Registration Day started back in 2012. It`s held on the fourth Tuesday of September.

Organizers say the goal is to create a broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who might not register otherwise.

Last year, more than 750,000 people in all 50 states used this day to register to vote. Close to 10,000 volunteers nationwide help out in this program.
