Powered By The People is a weekly series where GPB Atlanta host Leah Fleming speaks with political experts to give listeners a better idea about the elections that could shape their lives.
Today's episode offers some helpful reminders for Georgians voting today:
- Double check your polling place and registration status at the Secretary of State's website.
- Be sure to bring photo identification (drivers license, state-issued ID, passport, ect.)
- Don't wear anything that has the name of a candidate on the ballot, which is not allowed under state law.
- Think twice before you take that election selfie! Cell phone use is prohibited while voting in Georgia.
- If you experience a problem while trying to vote, ask for a provisional ballot.
- If you experience a long wait at your polling place, stay in line. Anyone in line before 7PM must be allowed to vote.
