CLEVELAND — With just 13 days left in Ohio to register vote in the upcoming presidential election, organizations are holding National Voter Registration Day events to help Ohioans make their voices heard.

National Voter Registration Day falls on September 22 this year, and serves as a great reminder to sign up if you haven't already, and also check that your information is up to date, in case you've recently moved, for example.

You can register to vote and check your status online in Ohio at this link with an Ohio driver’s license or Ohio identification card number, your name, date of birth, address, and the last four digits of your Social Security number.

If you'd like help getting registered to vote, there are multiple in-person voter registration drives happening today in the greater Cleveland area.

Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse will have people on site to help others register to vote beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 2 p.m.

The venue has also teams up with Ilthy to create a limited edition VOTE apparel collection, with several designs featuring the slogan "Cleveland turns up to vote."

Those items are available in the atrium at the fieldhouse, and also online, through the Cleveland Cavaliers team shop.

One of the area's newest restaurants, the Sixth City Sailors Club, is also hosting a voter registration drive with the help of the Downtown Cleveland Residents Association, between 4:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.

If you know of any additional events in your area, reply to the tweet above and we'll include them here.

In Ohio, you have to register or update your voter registration no later than 30 days prior to an election. 

The presidential election falls on November 3, so that makes the deadline October 5 to make sure your registration is up to date so you don't miss out on casting your ballot.
