ATLANTA, GA. (WTXL) - Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp wants to remind Georgians they must be registered to vote by October 6th in order to participate in the November 4th General Election.

All paper applications must have a post mark of October 6th.

"Every Georgian should have the opportunity to vote in the November 4th General Election," said Kemp. "The good news is that it is easier than ever to get registered to vote or to change your registration information."

Georgians with a valid Georgia driver's license can go online and register at: https://registertovote.sos.ga.gov/GAOLVR/#no-back-button.

The "GA Votes" app also allows Georgians to register to vote. Using the MVP feature on the app, Georgia voters can view their specific sample ballot, find their polling locations, check voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot. All of this information is available on mobile devices on Apple and Android platforms. To find the app search for "GA Votes" in the Apple app store or the Google Play store.

Kemp has been Secretary of State since January 2010. Among the office's wide-ranging responsibilities, the Secretary of State is charged with conducting secure, accessible and fair elections, the registration of corporations, and the regulation of securities and professional license holders.
