Monday is deadline to register to vote May 20

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - Georgians have until Monday to register to vote in the May 20 General Election primaries and primary runoffs. But this year, you can also sign up online.

The state instituted online registration March 31.

In making the announcement of online registration, Secretary of State Brian Kemp Georgia noted voters will need a valid state driver's license to register.

Kemp says voters may access online registration through the "My Voter Page" on the Secretary of State's website. At the same time, Kemp announced mobile registration. Mobile users, he said, can register through the "GA Votes" application.

If you live in Hall County and you need to register in person, you can do so at the Elections and Voter Registration Office in the county government center on Browns Bridge Road.

Elsewhere in Georgia, to find out where to register, check with your local voter registration and/or election officials.
