Georgia voters can now cast their ballots in person for the general election at their county registrar’s office without providing a reason.
A new law allows voters to cast ballots 45 days prior to an election, either by mail or in person without providing a reason.
“Georgia will experience large voter turnout in the November General Election,” said Karen Handel, secretary of state. “This change in the law gives voters more options to cast their ballot and will ease wait times on Election Day.”
Voters can request a mail-in ballot or vote early in-person through Friday, Oct. 31. All mail-in ballots must be received no later than 7 p.m. by the county registrar on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008.
Photo identification is not required when voting by mail. To download a mail-in ballot request form, visit www.sos.georgia.gov/ElectionCenter.
To find early voting locations and operating hours in your county, contact your county registrar’s office. Contact information can be found on the Election Center website.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. Voters can find voter registration information, including polling locations and legislative districts on the state website.
Voters casting ballots in-person during early voting or on Election Day will be required to show one of the following six forms of photo ID:
•A Georgia driver’s license, even if expired;
•Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free Voter ID Card issued by a county registrar or Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS);
•Valid U.S. passport;
•Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority, or other entity of the state;
•Valid U.S. military photo ID; or
•Valid tribal photo ID.

How about we all vote to do something about Pendergrass Police. Lets see if the new DA can do a better job at getting a crooked cop off the streets. That department has some serious issues. The tall skinny one with the pimples all over his face needs to show some respect to people and have faith in a person when they say they bought their car with the window tints already on it. I guess he has nothing better to do. Pendergrass must be crime free.
Biden voted in 1999 for deregulation that liberal groups are blaming for part of the financial crisis. The law allowed Wall Street investment banks to create the kind of mortgage-related securities at the core of the problem now.
Biden Said McCain supports tax breaks for oil companies, and "wants to give them another $4 billion tax cut."
Biden is repeating a favorite saw of the Obama campaign, and it's misleading. McCain supports a cut in income taxes for all corporations, and doesn't single out any one industry for that benefit.
During the debate, Biden said, "Oh, on clean coal. My record, just take a look at the record! My record for 25 years has supported clean coal technology.”.... However, during an early campaign stop once he was announced as VP Candidate, Biden said, "No coal plants here in America. If they’re going to build them, over there [China]. Make them clean. We’re not supporting clean coal.”. One of the most upsetting lines last night in the debate was Biden's attempt to say that he didn't know he was voting on a War resolution? I'm sorry but someone who has been in the Senate since Nixon didn't know he was voting on a War resolution when he voted on the Iraq War! Let me ask you people does he think we are stupid? Or is he just stupid? Either way if a seasoned senator doesn't know when he's voting on a war resolution we have bigger problems in Washington then we know! And we certainly do not need a VP like that sitting with an inexperienced president! If you think things are unstable now wait and see what will happen if God Forbid Obama and Biden get to the White House… Sarah Palin did great last night. She was able to manipulate the debate by bringing the talking points back to the issues that she wanted to talk about to the American people! McCain / Palin will be a breath of fresh air for this country and will make a great president and vice president. The age of Obama will end November 4th
Kevin.....man you got some funky glasses on if you saw Palin running the debate last night. Neither one of those candidates had anything to offer. They both talked a lot, but neither of them actually said anything worthwhile. So I would agree that she makes a good politician.
I don't want to vote for any of these people, although I will make a choice at some point and go to the polls.
And you are going to be comfortable with Palin as Vice President? (Wait, you think she's gonna be "great".) I don't know man, not so sure I can take anything you say seriously any more.
