Your spot for 2018 election information
Priority No. 1: Registration
You can't vote if you're not registered! Long before an election, it is important to make sure that you are registered to vote. Use this great tool by the Georgia Board of Elections to check your registration status. Are you registered at your current address? Great! You are ready to show up on Election Day and vote!
If you're not registered, or have moved since you registered last, not to worry--we'll help you take care of that here. TurboVote is one of #MiddleGAVote's partners--click on their link below, and you will be walked step-by-step through the voter registration process. Also check out the Georgia Board of Elections website for important election updates and information!
The second thing is... Education!
Being informed is just as important as registering to vote--you have to have the full package! Check out the League of Women Voter's Vote 411 site , which will help you with all your election questions!
Your third reminder is... GET OUT & VOTE!
You can register (great job!), and you can get educated (even better!), but if you don't show up to actually cast your ballot, you will have fallen short. Make sure you get out there and put your hard work to use--make sure you vote!
There's one thing about Georgia, though--Voter ID.
When you go to vote on Election Day, don't forget your ID. There are several types of identification which the state of Georgia will accept on Election Day:
Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free ID Card issued by your county registrar's office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
A Georgia Driver's License, even if expired
Valid U.S. passport ID
Valid U.S. military photo ID
Valid tribal photo ID
