Augusta, GA -

You have less than 2 weeks to register to vote in order to take part in the November 5th general election.

The Augusta Delta Sigma Theta Alumna chapter and Paine College held a voter registration Tuesday on the college's campus. The event was held in recognition of National Voter Registration Day.

Organizers say, in 2008, 6 million Americans didn't vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn't know how to register. The purpose of Tuesday's event is to make sure no one if left out.

"It's important to get not only students to come out and vote, but everyone to come out and vote. We want to get them registered, 'cause we have a lot of students and this morning, that I've met that have not registered to vote that are of voting age," says Deborrah Wilcox, with the Augusta Delta Sigma Theta Alumna chapter.

Again, Georgians have until October 7th to register to vote if you want to take part in the November general election.
