Georgians now can now register to vote or check their voting information by text message. Eligible voters may text “GA” or “Georgia” and then move to “2 VOTE” (28683). That is the link to the state Online Voter Registration (ONLVR) site. Then you can check the “My Voter Page.”
The pilot project uses texting technology for citizens “so they can easily register to vote and stay informed through this important election cycle,” says Brian Kemp, Secretary of State for Georgia. State election officials expect that online voter registration on the My Voter Page and 2 Vote “will be for the benefit of current and future voters,” Kemp noted.
Important notice: October 11th is the deadline for eligible Georgians to vote in the November 8th general election.
