Deadline for Voter Registration Approaching

Voter registration is available at the North Fulton Annex at 7741 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.


The voter registration deadline for residents interested in voting in the November general election is Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Registration is available at the North Fulton Annex at 7741 Roswell Road.

Registered voters are urged to check and make sure their address information on file with the department is up-to-date, especially if they have had an address or name change recently.

Residents registering to vote for the first time and registered voters who want to update their information both need to fill out a voter registration form. Once the Department receives the completed form, precinct cards are mailed within two to three weeks of that receipt. 

In additon to the North Fulton Annex, voter registration forms are also available at the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office and all Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library branches. You can also download a voter registration form online.

If you are registering for the first time in Georgia, you must provide one of the following forms of identification:

  • Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a FREE Voter ID Card issued by the county registrar’s office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS);
  • A Georgia Driver’s License, even if expired;
  • A valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state;
  • A valid U.S. passport ID;
  • A valid U.S. military photo ID;
  • A valid tribal photo ID;
  • A copy of a current utility bill;

The Department of Registration and Elections regularly partners with civic, business and religious organizations to conduct voter registration drives. Groups interested in scheduling a drive can contact the Department of Registration and Elections by phone (404-612-7020) or by fax (404-730-7024).

There is nothing wrong with requiring an ID to vote. HOWEVER There IS something wrong with implementing this new law 9 months before a presidential election. If voter fraud was so rampant in the last election, why didn't the GOP rush to pass this law immediately after the 2008 election? Wait until the 2016 election to impose this, that way it will give people 4 years to get their act together, and THEN you can give them the 'you have no excuse' treatment. Watch the video and sign the petition to end Voter Suppression. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9TjVsQa57c
