National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - In honor of National Voter Registration day Worth County election officials are encouraging folks to sign up to vote.

The County's Board of Elections says less than 50 percent of registered voters cast ballots in the last election.

They have a new web site for voters to get the proper information and register to vote.

They say every vote is important because in the past they've had some close races.

"Don't say my vote does not count. I can tell you examples of when vote did make a difference especially in the City of Sylvester election a couple of years ago," Virginia Andrews said.

Cities around Georgia will have local elections November 3rd.
