It’s a busy day at voter registration centers across the country. Today’s the last day to sign up to vote in several key states, including Michigan and Indiana.

It’s all hands on deck to process applications in Berrien County, Michigan, according to Clerk Louise Stine.

STINE: It is extremely busy. We’ve been getting in just hundreds of voter registrations.

The board set up special tables on the ground floor to accommodate the crowds.
