Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp Tuesday announced 11,970 Georgians went online using a computer or the MVP mobile app to use the new online voter registration system. 6,884 new voters used the system and 5,086 residents used the system to update their information.

“When we launched this system three weeks ago, I made a commitment to speak to as many Georgia voters as possible so that they could take advantage of this great new tool,” Kemp said. “The team in the office of the secretary of state spoke and worked in every region of Georgia to get people engaged in the new system. It is enormously gratifying that Georgians responded in numbers this large.”

Georgia voters can download the new “My Voter Page” app on their Apple or Android device, where they can view their specific sample ballot, find their early voting and election day polling locations, check voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot. Just search for “GA Votes” in the app store.

While Monday’s deadline for voter registration in order to participate in the May 20 primary election has passed, residents with a valid Georgia driver’s license can still use the system to register for the Nov. 4 general election. The deadline for registration for that election is Oct. 6.
