By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - Since the state instituted online voter registration March 31, twenty people have used the new service to sign up to vote in Hall County.
That's was as of late Friday morning, according to Hall County Chief Voter Registrar and Elections Director Charlotte Sosebee.
Meanwhile, in Gwinnett County, where the population is about 4 1/2 times what it is in Hall County, Voter Registrations and Elections Supervisor Lynn Ledford said that 139 people had registered online.
The deadline to register to vote in the May 20 General Election primaries is April 21.
Gwinnett residents have already registered to vote using the Georgia Secretary of State’s new online voter registration feature that was launched on March 31. The state also offers an interactive mobile application that has all the capabilities of the “My Voter Page” elections information page on the Secretary of State’s website.
The My Voter Page allows Georgia voters to view their sample ballot, find early voting and Election Day polling locations, check their voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot. The mobile application is currently available on Android and will soon be available on the Apple platform; search for “GA Votes” in the app store.
