Multiple hard drives under boot password

Just as the title points out, is it possible to get multiple hard drives protected by boot password with Veracrypt? I encrypted the main system, but I'm not really sure how to proceed after this.

And to add, do I need to use programs like Dban to first wipe out the drives or are they okay with veracrypt ?

You will encrypt the other drives/partitions using the same password and PIM (optional) that you used on the system encryption.

Then you mount the other volumes and add them to System Favorites.

VeraCrypt will overwrite all of the space. In my opinion with modern HDD, you do not need to use wipe utilities. One pass of encrypted data on the entire volume will prevent recovery of the original data.
