Tuesday marked "National Voter Registration Day," a reminder to register or double-check your registration status ahead of the November election.

New Yorkers have until October 8 to register.

At Russell Sage College on Tuesday, there was an effort to get new students to register to vote.

Last year, about 60 students signed up to vote. Organizers were hoping to beat that number on Tuesday.
