Americans are registering to vote in record numbers ahead of the midterm elections on Nov. 6. The divisiveness of the Trump presidency has fired up both Democrats and Republicans across the country.

For some Democratic candidates, success hinges on how many new voters they can draw to the polls. Supporters of Texas’s Beto O’Rourke, who’s running for US Senate, have turned his rallies into voter registration drives. The Texas deadline to register was Oct. 9.

Donald Trump is also urging supporters to register.

Here are states where you can still register to vote. Click on each state’s name for more detail.
