Voter registration deadline is today

POSTED: April 21, 2014 12:13 a.m.

Today is the voter registration deadline for the May 20 primary election.

Georgians are now being offered paperless voter registration options that Secretary of State Brian Kemp said he expects to save time and money.

Georgia voters with a valid state driver’s license may access online registration through the “My Voter Page” on the Secretary of State’s website. Android and Apple mobile users can now access the “GA Voter” application.

Voters also can check their registration status, polling locations and retrieve a sample ballot from the website.

According to the Secretary of State’s office, 6,096 Georgians had registered to vote online as of Thursday.

Hall County residents can also register to vote at the county elections office.

Director of Elections Charlotte Sosebee said the registration deadline typically results in a busy day for her office.
“I believe Monday we’ll get a lot of phone calls ... and people coming in,” she said.

Voters also still have time to request an application to receive an absentee ballot by calling or visiting the Hall County elections office, or downloading one from the Secretary of State’s website.

According to the county elections office, 227 absentee ballots were mailed by April 18.

Meanwhile, early voting in Hall County begins April 28 and runs through May 16.

There are currently about 95,000 registered voters in Hall County, according to Sosebee.
