People who want to vote in the Nov. 4 general election have until next Monday, Oct. 6, to register to vote.
The Nov. 4 general election will decide several important races, including:
– The governor’s race between incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal, R, and state Sen. Jason Carter, D.
– The U.S. Senate race between David Perdue, R, Michelle Nunn, D, and libertarian candidate Amanda Swafford.
– State School Superintendent’s race between Richard Woods, R, and Valarie Wilson, D.
– State Sen. District 42 race between Greg Williams, R, and Elena Parent, D.
According to Project Vote Smart, in Georgia you must be 17 1/2 to register and 18 to vote. You must be a U.S. Citizen and hold a valid state or federal photo ID, like a driver’s license. You cannot vote if you are serving a sentence related to a felony conviction. You can’t vote if a judge has ruled you to be mentally incompetent.
