It’s almost that time, folks. So are you prepared? If not, if you’re a Georgia voter, I can help a bit. If you’re not, please visit your state’s Secretary of State website for more information. Most that I’ve seen are pretty user friendly and will provide you with pertinent dates, your registration status, a poll locator, and information about who’s running.
For Georgia voters, you have until Monday, October 4 to get registered to vote or to change your address if you’ve moved if you want to vote in the November 2 election. You can probably find a sorority in a parking lot or a mall, but if you want to be a little more proactive, you can visit your local library, your county board of registrars office, or any public assistance office to get registered. If you’re not sure if you’re registered or if you are newly registered and don’t know where you should go to vote or if you know all that but need to know your congressional district, click here. If you’re not sure if you’re eligible to vote, click here.
Now, once you’ve registered (remember, you have this week and the weekend to get it done!), you need to know who is running for office so you can vote smart. All qualified candidates running for office in Georgia are listed here, along with their contact information and websites. The proposed amendments and referendums are located at that link as well. But if they’re a little difficult to decipher, this site summarizes each of them pretty well.
C’mon! Get out and be an educated voter!
