ATLANTA – Today is the last day to register to vote in next month’s special election to fill the vacancy in House District 171, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is reminding people whose registration was cancelled that they can re-register and still vote.

On Monday, December 16, 2019, Georgia completed its state and federally required list maintenance obligation of moving inactive voter registrations to cancelled status. While this list maintenance process is an effort to keep the voter rolls clean by cancelling those who pass away or have moved from their registered address, some electors whose registration was cancelled may still live in Georgia and be eligible to register and vote.

All Georgians should check their voter registration information to make sure they are still registered where they currently reside.  You can check your registration using the My Voter Page (MVP) website (https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov).  If you are not able to locate your registration using the MVP website, or your information displayed on the MVP website is not accurate, you may submit a new voter registration application by midnight or update the information in your existing registration online at this link: https://registertovote.sos.ga.gov

If you live in the parts of Colquitt, Decatur or Mitchell Counties that comprise Georgia House District 171, please check to make sure your registration is active and accurate. If your registration was cancelled due to the recent list maintenance, you will have to re-register in order to vote in future elections.

The deadline to register to vote to be eligible to participate in the HD 171 special election is today, Monday Dec. 30, 2019. A mail-in registration must be postmarked Dec. 30. An online registration must be completed by midnight.
