Local News

Election day is 42 days away.

The time to register is running out, so if you plan on voting, make sure you register as soon as possible.

Both Georgia and Alabama allow voters to register both online,in person, and even on their phones using the state’s voter registration app. 

Voter registration in Georgia ends October 9th, while voters in the Alabama have until October 22nd. According to the Voter Participation Center, over 2 million georgians are not registered to vote, double the amount in neighboring Alabama. The yellow hammer state has just over 1 million unregistered voters.

Some residents may have to register, even if they have done so years before. Anyone who hasn’t voted in the past 8 years has been removed from voter rolls.

Once registered, be sure to check your voting location. The precinct closest to your home is not always your assigned voting location.

Additionally, any voters who plan to file an absentee ballot must apply to do so ahead of time. 
Georgia absentee ballots must be received by November 2nd, while in Alabama they are due on Election Day at noon.
