Thousands of people in Smith County have registered to vote since the July primary. About 4,300 in fact.

Tuesday was the last day to register to vote ahead of the November 6th election, so the window has closed. But voter registration drives around Tyler over the past few months, and a big voter-registration push by both parties has led to an increase in the number of people who signed up to vote.

There's no final tally yet on the number of registered voters that have come in across the state, but the Secretary of State's office says most counties are reporting an increase. So Smith County is not alone.

Now, just because you've registered doesn't mean your work is done! Get out and vote November 6th. You're not only deciding who will be the next US President, but you also have a say about the local option alcohol petitions to legalize beer and wine sales in Tyler. Let your opinion be heard!
