Tuesday is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 7 city and special elections across Georgia, including a number in northeast Georgia.
Additionally, according to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, all address changes and other updates have to be submitted by the same day to be effective for these elections.
Voters have several options to register to vote or update their information. You can read about them on the Secretary of State website.
Since 2014, Georgia voters can register or make changes to their registration using the Secretary of State’s Online Voter Registration website (OLVR) by using a driver’s license or valid Georgia ID card. Voters can also access OLVR by downloading the “GA SOS” app on their smartphone or by texting “GA” to “2VOTE.”
Steps for Voters to Check Registration:
*Check voter registration status using the Secretary of State Office’s “My Voter Page” (MVP).
*Use OLVR, GA SOS, or text “GA” to “2VOTE” to register to vote or to update your voter registration at registertovote.sos.ga.gov.
*Visit your local elections office to fill out or drop off your voter registration application before the deadline.
*If you have prepared a paper voter registration application, Mail it in as soon as possible. Applications postmarked by Tuesday, October 10 will be processed by the November 7 election.
