Atlanta – Secretary of State Brian Kemp is reminding Georgians that September 22, 2015, is National Voter Registration Day. National Voter Registration Day is a civic event bringing together thousands of organizations, volunteers, and citizens across the nation to raise awareness of voter registration opportunities and register eligible voters in one coordinated effort.
“It is my hope that any eligible Georgia voter will use this day as an opportunity to register to vote and have the chance to cast their ballot in the fast approaching Presidential Preference Primary”, said Kemp.
Georgians have until October 5, 2015 to register to vote in order to take part in the November 3, 2015 general/special election. The deadline to register to vote in the Presidential Preference Primary on March 1, 2016 is February 1, 2016.
Georgia citizens have access to several convenient methods of registering to vote:
If you have a valid driver’s license, you can register online at: https://registertovote.sos.ga.gov/GAOLVR/#no-back-button
You may register to vote in-person at the local County Registrar’s office in the county in which you now reside, at most public libraries and Family & Children’s Services, or you may complete and mail a Voter Registration form from our website: http://sos.ga.gov/elections/voter_registration/GA%20VOTER%20REGISTRATION%20%20APP(Fill_2007).pdf
