Registration deadline approaches for November elections

Georgians who want to make their voice heard in the Nov. 2 election have until Monday to register to vote.

Nearly every statewide office is up for grabs this year, along with a historic number of open seats, making this an election not to miss. This year’s ballots will also include all 180 state House seats, all 56 Senate districts and the entire 13-member congressional delegation, not to mention myriad judicial and local races.

But you can’t vote if you don’t register.

To register, visit your local county registrar and fill out an application. You can find your registrar’s office on the Secretary of State’s website.

Or, you can download a voter registration application off the website, fill it out and mail it in. Applications must be postmarked no later than Monday to meet the registration deadline.

If you mail in your application, and it is the first time you’ve registered to vote in Georgia, you must include a copy of a current and valid photo ID, a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.

And, be sure to sign your application.
