GEORGIA – Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced that Georgia has shattered the all-time voter registration record with over 6,915,000 active and inactive voters on the rolls. Kemp expects the total number to break 7,000,000 voters at any moment as counties continue to process forms received by yesterday's deadline.
“Despite what you hear or read, the numbers are clear. While outside agitators disparage this office and falsely attack us, we have kept our head down and remained focused on ensuring secure, accessible, and fair elections for all voters. The fact is that it has never been easier to register to vote and get engaged in the electoral process in Georgia, and we are incredibly proud to report this new record.”
The voter registration deadline was Oct. 9 for the Nov. 6 election. Absentee by mail voting is already underway. Early in-person voting runs Oct. 15 through Nov. 2. In all 159 counties, the polls will be open on Saturday, Oct. 27.
