Secretary of state reminds Georgians of voter registration deadline

Posted:

ATLANTA – Secretary of State Brian Kemp reminded Georgians they must be registered to vote by April 21 in order to participate in the May 20 primary election.

“Every Georgian should have the opportunity to vote in the May 20 primary election,” said Kemp. “The good news is that it is easier than ever to get registered to vote or to change your registration information.”

Georgians with a valid Georgia driver’s license can go online and register at www.registertovote.sos.ga.gov/GAOLVR/#no-back-button.

The “My Voter Page” (MVP) app, available on mobile devices on Apple and Android platforms, also allows Georgians to register to vote.

Voters can view their specific sample ballot, find their polling locations, check voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot.

To find the app, search for “GA Votes” in the app store.

Kemp launched the new systems last week at a combined meeting of the Georgia Election Officials Association/Voter Registrars Association of Georgia in Augusta, which featured election leaders from across the state.

It is believed that Georgia is the first state in the nation to offer both online registration as well as an innovative mobile application that enables voter registration like MVP.
