You may not be able to make it into the Room Where It Happens anytime soon, but at least some of the Founding Fathers will help you register to vote in the upcoming election.

On Wednesday, one day after National Voter Registration Day, cast members from Hamilton: An American Musical will be setting up a voter registration event outside of Richard Rodgers Theatre, where the show takes place. Registration will take place in front of the theater from 5-7 p.m. ET on that day, as well as on Oct. 1. Members of the cast who participate will have been trained by voter registration volunteers from the Hispanic Federation, an organization providing community services to the Hispanic community in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

“Voting honors our democracy; honors our founding fathers; and honors the spirit of our show. We want to do our part to help all citizens participate in an election that will deeply affect the direction of our country,” said Jeffrey Seller, the show’s producer.

The cast will provide national registration forms so that people from all 50 states can register.
