The deadline for voter registration in the 2008 Presidential Election is Monday, Jan. 7.
Chief Registrar Warren Miller said voter registration applications can be filled out through the registrar’s office, at either of the county’s libraries or City Hall offices, or at the Probate Court or Tax Commissioner’s offices. A voting application can also be gotten online at http://sos.georgia.gov/elections/voter_registration/voter_reg_app.htm.
“As long as it’s done by Monday, they’ll be eligible,” Miller said.
