Less Than A Month To Go - How Do I Register To Vote?!?!
That’s right, the Presidential Preference Primary is right around the corner! And thanks to overzealous states, ours has been bumped up a month. That also means that registering to vote has been bumped up a month too! So how do you register? It’s Easy!
Are you moving before January 7th? Then registering is easy. When you make your dreaded visit to the DMV (or now DDS) and they ask if you’d like to register to vote, say YES! If you are changing your address via internet, like I did a few years ago, you can also register to vote; just click the correct radial button. Trust me, it is easy!
Show up to the next Business Meeting or FCDP Holiday Party! This Wednesday, I will be at the Fulton County Democratic Party Holiday Party armed with registration forms. I will also be at our meeting in January, just days before the deadline, with more forms.
Can’t make either. Then send me an email and I’ll make sure a form is in your hands before the deadline. If you choose this option, please do so many days before January 7th.
Online Options: Go to the Secretary of State’s Website before January 7th and download a voter registration form to mail to your County Board of Registrar's Office or Secretary of State's Office. Again, no postage necessary if mailed within the United States.
Any of these other locations before January 7th: Fulton County Government Center (141 Pryor Street, SW, Suite 4085, Atlanta, GA 30303), South Service Center (5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park, GA), North Service Center (7741 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, GA), All Public Libraries, All County Courthouses and City Halls. If you are a student or school personnel, you can also register at your college or high school.
