June 21st is the last day voters can register for the Georgia General Primary. The primary decides who will run in the general election for statewide offices including governor, school superintendent and more than 40 seats in the state legislature.
Secretary of State Brian Kemp says a new online tool allows voters to check their registration status and get up to date election information like directions to polling places.
"We would encourage people to go out our website at sos.ga.gov [and] click on our ‘My Voter Page’ and download voter registration forms," said Kemp. "As long as people will go on and do that and get them sent in this week they’ll be registered in plenty of time to vote on July the 20th."
Voter registration forms must reach county election offices or be postmarked by no later than June 21st.
