ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Monday is the last day to register to vote in the November 3rd elections. To register, you can go to any library, county elections office, or the secretary of state's website.
Dougherty Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson says she's seen very few people registering at her office.

"Just as important that we come out and we exercise our rights, correct."
You can also mail in your voter registration, but it must be postmarked by Monday at midnight.
