Early Voting Starts In Two Weeks...There's No Reason Not To Vote

During the 2008 legislative session, the Georgia House and Senate passed a bill (Senate Bill 387) that changed Georgia's election law to allow for in-person, no-excuse absentee voting 45 days prior to the election.

What this means is that beginning Monday, September 22nd, any registered voter could walk into their county elections office and vote early without providing a reason. All any voter has to do is walk into their local elections office, say "I want to vote," get a ballot, vote, and they'll be done with the process weeks ahead of time.

The early voting period begins Monday, September 22nd and ends Friday, October 24th.

The advanced voting period begins Monday October 27th and ends Friday, October 31st; my birthday.

And of course, the big day is Tuesday, November 4th from 7AM to 7PM.

With all this opportunities to vote, there is no reason why anyone should miss out on this election.
