Georgia Voter Registration Deadline

Registration to vote for the November 6th general election is now over if your local elections office has closed for the day.

Barbara Berry, elections supervisor in Walker County, says her office has had a steady stream of voters registering the last two days. Despite initial concerns, there haven’t been any issues with people being able to prove their identities with eligible photo ID’s:

“They’re very quiet, no comments, all they’re interested in is getting registered to vote and where they go to vote and the form of identification they need to carry with them.”

Aside from the presidential race, Georgia has 14 state Senate and 43 state House seats on the ballot in contested elections. Voters will also have to decide whether to amend the state constitution regarding control over the authorization of charter schools and how the state can rent buildings for its use.

Absentee ballots have already been mailed to people who requested them. Early “in-person” voting begins Monday at select locations.
