AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Students at schools throughout Maine are squaring off to see who can get the most voters registered this fall.

The drive is called the 2016 Voter Reg Rumble and it’s hosted by Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.

The rumble is actually two competitions. One is for colleges and universities and the other is for high schools.

The goal is to see which school can get the most people to complete a voter registration card by Oct. 17.

Dunlap says student groups can participate by hosting a voter registration event or other effort to collect the registration cards on campus. They are allowed to encourage registration for students, staff, faculty, visitors and anyone else who is eligible to vote.
