    Traffic passes a Planned Parenthood sign in Dallas, Monday, June 27, 2016. The group is launching a voter registration campaign aimed at groups that may not otherwise turn out to vote.

    Planned Parenthood is launching a nonpartisan voter registration campaign through college campuses, online and its clinics, NBC News reported.

    The effort is aimed to help marginalized populations participate more in this election cycle, the women's health provider announced to the Huffington Post Friday.

    The voter registration campaign, titled "My Vote, My Voice," will have volunteers in 45 states set up tables outside of Planned Parenthood clinics and other spots in communities to educate people about their state's voter ID laws while helping them register to vote. Two weeks before the general election, volunteers will also remind people to vote.

    "If we can't all participate in our government, we all get cheated," Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Anna Keene said to the Huffington Post.
