Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — The November elections are just two months away and each political party is pulling out the stops to try and sway your vote.

For the last few months’ volunteers have been trying to spread the word that every vote counts in this crucial election year.

“In swing states every single vote counts,” said Janet Cooley of the Republican Party. “Obama won the last election by fourteen thousand votes so every single vote is important.”

To drive up numbers at the polls volunteers have given shoppers more than they bargained for on their trip to the store by setting up voter registration booths.

To register to vote you will need a few basic pieces of information: Your legal name, age, mailing address, and social security or drivers license number.

You can register online in the privacy of your own home. After completing the form you simply print it and mail it back to your local board of elections.

The deadline to register to vote in North Carolina is twenty-five days before an election.
