Are You Ready?

Are you registered to vote???  I think we can all agree that the upcoming Presidential election is a very important event.  And what’s even more important is that we are all registered to vote so we can make our voices heard in November!  So, it’s a good thing I finally took the time to fill out my voter registration and get it in the mail before the October 9 deadline.

Since we moved to Georgia just over a year ago I needed to find out what the requirements were for being eligible to vote, and this is what I found:

To register to vote you must:

  • Be a citizen of the United States
  • Be a legal resident of the county
  • Be at least 17 1/2 years of age to register and 18 years of age to vote
  • Not be serving a sentence for conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude
  • Have not been found mentally incompetent by a judge

Thanks to the Georgia Secretary of State site I was able to start my application process online, then print and mail my application to the local voter registration office.  Can’t wait to get my voter precinct card and cast my vote!  See you at the voting booth!!
