BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- There's a new push to increase Hispanic voter registration in Alabama.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute will host a voter registration drive aimed at Hispanic citizens on Saturday.

The event is being co-sponsored by Rivera Communications, which operates a Spanish-language radio station that broadcasts in central Alabama. The station is promoting the drive on the air.

The head of education and exhibits at the museum, Ahmad Ward, says the registration drive is open to anyone who is eligible to vote. But it's specifically targeting Hispanics who aren't currently registered ahead of the November election.

Sponsors say the drive is part of Hispanic Heritage Month.
