ATLANTA—Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced that early voting for the Nov. 2 general election runs through Oct. 29 in all Georgia counties. The deadline to request a mail-in ballot is Oct. 29; mail-in ballots must be received by the voter’s county elections office by the close of polls on Election Day.
Secretary Kemp reminded voters to utilize the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page (MVP) voter education Web site before participating in the general election. The MVP Web site allows voters to view their sample ballot, find the early voting locations in their county and their Election Day polling location, check their registration status, track the status of their absentee ballot, and more. The MVP Web site can be accessed at: http://www.sos.ga.gov/mvp.
“The MVP e-government solution provides an invaluable educational resource for voters,” Kemp said. “We want to put as much information in the hands of the voter as we can, in an easy-to-use format. The goal is for every voter in the state of Georgia to have the information he or she needs to be able to make the voting process work for them.”
Kemp also encouraged Georgians to assist his agency with preventing election fraud. The Stop Voter Fraud Web site allows Georgians to report questionable election activity online or via the Stop Voter Fraud hotline. Citizens who witness questionable election-related activity can submit a Stop Voter Fraud form at: www.sos.ga.gov/StopVoterFraud or call the Secretary of State’s Voter Fraud Hotline at 877-725-9797.
