GREENVILLE, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -

People in South Carolina who want to vote in the upcoming election and have not yet registered have until Saturday to do so.

On Tuesday, the Justice Department approved South Carolina's online voter registration law. The law allows voters with a valid state driver's license or another identification card issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

People may also register at their local board of voter registration office.

According to the state Election Commission, people who want to register to vote must be a U.S. citizen who is at least 18 years old, a resident of South Carolina, not under a court order declaring them mentally incompetent, not confined in a public prison and never convicted of a felony or offense against election laws or, if previously convicted, must have served their entire sentence, including probation or parole or has received a pardon for the conviction.

In North Carolina, residents have until Oct. 12 to register.

Georgia residents can register to vote until Oct. 9.

The general election will be held Nov. 6.
