Political campaigns and community organizers are making their final push to register people to vote for the presidential election in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
In the battleground state of Ohio, all of the state's 88 county elections boards will be open until 9 p.m. Tuesday, when registration ends.
According to the secretary of state's office, more than 7.9 million Ohioans were registered to vote as of Friday. And the state' elections chief has said he expects that count to grow slightly.
About 8.2 million Ohioans were registered to vote in 2008.
Several Ohio churches in Cleveland and Cincinnati planned to take people to local boards so they could register and vote. The Rev. Jesse Jackson planned to urge Cincinnati State University students to vote at a Tuesday rally.
In Kentucky, the Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's chief election official, is reminding people who aren't yet registered that they need to hurry.
To raise awareness, Grimes held a voter registration drive in Danville on Monday afternoon.
County clerks' offices will accept voter registration cards until they close Tuesday. Mail-in voter registration applications have to be postmarked by Tuesday to be timely. Voters who have recently moved also have to update their registration information Tuesday.
In Indiana, voters can register at their county clerk's office, Bureau of Motor Vehicle branches or at https://indianavoters.in.gov .
