Rockets and Texans host voter registration drives in Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Two Houston teams are encouraging Houstonians to vote in the upcoming November election.

The Houston Rockets held a voters registration drive Friday at the Toyota Center. The event allowed people to drive up, fill out the registration form and then leave.

"I love it. I think it's a great idea," Houstonian Darla Tollefson said. "We heard the commercial. We can vote early, we're really excited about that too."

The Houston Texans also held a similar event at the YMCA at 5202 Griggs Road on Friday from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m.

The first 100 people who signed up received a "We Are Texans, We Are Voters" shirt.
