LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day, and the La Crosse City Clerk is urging people to register early.  

If you plan to register by mail, you have to mail your forms by October 19th.

After that day, all voter registrations will have to be done in person at the city clerk's office, or at your polling place on Election Day. But registering early can save you time.

"Election day is very busy, and the more people we can get preregistered, and have their addresses updated and already in the system, the better off everybody will be on election day,” said la Crosse City Clerk Terri Lehrke.

You can start your registration application online. Just head to MyVote.WI.gov.
