    Hello Georgia!
  • 未同步
    If you want to be able to
    vote in November,
  • 未同步
    you’re going to have to register first.
  • 未同步
    You can check using the link below
  • 未同步
    to see if you’re registered already.
  • 未同步
    If you’re not,
  • 未同步
    or if you’ve moved or changed your
    name since the last time you voted,
  • 未同步
    you can use that same link to
    fill out a registration application.
  • 未同步
    For those of you who have a valid
    Georgia driver’s license,
  • 未同步
    you’ll be able to enter that license
    number and submit the form online.
  • 未同步
    If you don’t have a Georgia license,
  • 未同步
    they’ll ask you to print it out,
    sign it and mail it in.Like, with a stamp.
  • 未同步
    I know it’s annoying, but it’s important,
    so do it anyway.
  • 未同步
    The deadline to register is October 5th
  • 未同步
    if you want to vote in the general
    election on November 3rd.
  • 未同步

    So once you’re registered,
  • 未同步
    you have a couple different
    options for how you can vote.
  • 未同步
    Anyone in Georgia can vote by mail,
  • 未同步
    otherwise known as voting absentee,
    for any reason.
  • 未同步
    All you have to do is download the
    form in the link below,
  • 未同步
    fill it out and mail it to your County
    Board of Registrar’s office
  • 未同步
    here’s a link to all their addresses
    in the description.
  • 未同步
    technically Georgia accepts absentee
    ballot requests up until October 30th
  • 未同步
    but the sooner you apply to vote
    absentee the sooner you get your
  • 未同步
    ballot and the longer that you will have
    to look it over and make your decisions
  • 未同步
    and mail it back before November 3rd
    you can also vote early in person
  • 未同步
    October 12th through 30th the
  • 未同步
    hours and locations vary by county but all
    counties are required to allow you to
  • 未同步
    vote early on at least one Saturday if
    voting on the weekend is easier for you
  • 未同步
    there's a link in the description where
    you can just select your county
  • 未同步
    and it will tell you when and
    where you can go
  • 未同步
    vote early if you really want all the
    excitement or voting in person
  • 未同步
    on November 3rd though you can find out
    where to go to vote using the same link
  • 未同步
    Polls are open from 7am to 7pm statewide.
    You’ll need to bring an ID with you.
  • 未同步
    They’ll accept a driver’s license, state ID,
    passport, military ID or tribal ID.
  • 未同步
    If you don’t have any of those forms of
    identification,
  • 未同步
    you can get a free voter ID card at your
    County Registrar’s office or the DMV.
  • 未同步
    The hours that those offices are open can vary,
    and you’ll also need a birth certificate
  • 未同步
    and a proof of address to get one,
    so if you need free voter ID,
  • 未同步
    start working on that now.
  • 未同步
    if you want to see everything
    that you’ll be able to vote for,
  • 未同步
    there’s a link below to where you can
    find your sample ballot-
  • 未同步
    it’s the same link that you’ll use to
    register and check your voting location.
  • 未同步
    This gives you a chance to research
    the candidates
  • 未同步
    for your local elections ahead of time.
  • 未同步
    You don’t have to vote for every item on
    the ballot if you don’t want to,
  • 未同步
    but if you do want to have an impact on
    those important local elections,
  • 未同步
    it’s really helpful to know what’s going
    to be on there
  • 未同步
    before you walk into the voting booth.
  • 未同步
    If you want, you can print one out
    and bring it to the polls with you
  • 未同步
    so you can remember how you want to vote.
  • 未同步
    One last thing: if you’re going to vote
  • 未同步
    open up your notes app or grab a piece
    of paper and make a plan.
  • 未同步
    Write down when and how you’re going to register,
  • 未同步
    what time you’re gonna vote,
    how you’re gonna get there,
  • 未同步
    what ID you’re going to use,
  • 未同步
    even who you’re
    going to bring to the polls with you.
  • 未同步
    Having a plan is a great way to make sure
  • 未同步
    hat nothing unexpected stops you from
    voting on November 3rd.
  • 未同步
    All the links you need to check
    your registration
  • 未同步
    and polling location will
    be in the description.
  • 未同步
    Thanks for voting.
