Oct. 24 is last day you can register to vote

According to the National Voters Registration Day website, at least 6 million voters didn’t cast ballots in 2008 because they missed their registration deadline or didn’t know how to register.

Tuesday, Oct. 11 is the last day to register in Georgia and Monday, Oct. 24 marks the last day in Alabama for the November 8th election.

In addition to the national election, there are some 14 state amendments for voters to either approve or disapprove. In Chambers County, the District 2 Commissioner race is still up for grabs, with an independent candidate now on the ballot.

In Georgia, you’ll need a Georgia driver’s license or state-issued ID card, in addition to a signature on file at the Georgia Department of Driver Services.

In Alabama, you’ll need an Alabama driver’s license or a government issued non-driver’s ID card to register.

To register in person, you can go to your local voter registration office. The LaFayette office is located in the old County Office Building (on the other end of the block from the theater, second door up.)

They are open Monday thru Friday, 8am till 5pm
