If you’ve spent any time on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, or Farmers Only today, then you already know that everyone had a lot of opinions about last night’s debate between “Crooked Hillary” and “The Great Orange Menace.” But did you know that of the 218,959,000 people in America eligible to vote that only 146,311,000 are registered? That means that many of the people demanding change aren’t even going to cast a ballot to help make that change happen. And since it’s National Voter Registration Day, we’re helping make sure that your voice isn’t silent simply because you weren’t registered.

First you should check whether you’re actually registered to vote. You can do that by visiting Headcount, checking I Will Vote, or clicking over to your state’s election page (here’s New York’s Page, for instance; and here’s California’s).

If you’re already registered, your job is almost done because you don’t have to fill out any more forms. But considering that this election feels momentously important, you may want to head on over to Total Registration Live for more information on the issues and details on how to host your own registration day event.

If you’re not registered, never fear! You don’t have to stop posting your opinions online, but if you want to turn those opinions into an actual vote that counts, you’re going to need to log off for just a few seconds while you get your papers (read: online forms) in order, so you don’t miss the registration deadline in your state.

Rock the Vote has put together all the deadlines — and voter registration documents — in one place, but if you’re a little confused about when your last day to turn something in is (what is 11 days before the election, anyway?), we’ve got you covered. Here are the last days to register online, by mail, or in person, state by state.
