    As of today, it has never been easier to register to vote, and now, for at least 92 percent of Americans – those who have a cell phone –  they can do it in minutes.

    Hello.Vote allows users to text a few simple details to register to vote. Depending on the state you live in, you may get an application back in the mail, but for many, it's a done deal.

    How does it work?

    Just text HELLO to 384-387.

    "HelloVote asks you a series of questions by text message or Facebook Messenger, to help you register to vote," the company's website states. "In several states, your answers submit directly to state online forms, so there are no paper forms to fill out! (No other service makes it this fast and easy.) In other states, we send you a pre-filled form by email or - if you don't have a printer - by mail. We include a stamped envelope, so to complete your registration you just have to sign and mail it."

    You can also visit their website to start the process online or via Facebook Messenger.

    MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Twitter just called it "truly amazing"...

    ... because it is.

    Do it. Now.
    Register to vote.
