The Georgia Secretary of State's My Voter Page now offers Georgia residents a way to complete a voter registration application online.
The online registration feature requires prospective voters to have a valid driver's license or identification card issued by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) with signature on file with the DDS. Since the new feature launched on March 31, 139 Gwinnett residents have registered online to vote according to Gwinnett Voter Registrations and Elections Supervisor Lynn Ledford.
"We are thrilled this new technology is available for Georgia residents and have already noticed that online voter registration applications take less time to process,” said Gwinnett Voter Registrations and Elections Director Lynn Ledford in a released statement.
The deadline to register to vote in the May 20 General Primary/Nonpartisan Election is April 21.
