RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Virginians are registering to vote at a faster rate than they have in previous years.

A review of voter registration data by the Daily Press found (goo.gl/VRkwJG) nearly 370,000 Virginians have registered to vote so far this year, with nearly a third of those signing up in October.

The registrations so far in 2016 represents about a 30 percent increase from 2012.

A record 5.6 million Virginians are registered to vote ahead of Election Day.
