Cobb Elections is on the move to register voters
Large registration drive scheduled for National Voter Registration Day
On Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2023, the Cobb County Board of Elections & Registration will join thousands of nationwide organizations to celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a large, rain-or-shine Voter Registration Drive at their office from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The drive will ensure voters are registered and prepared for the upcoming November 7 Municipal General Election. Stop by for onsite voter registration, voter identification cards, absentee ballot requests, 2024 election worker recruitment, and more.
The celebration will also feature entertainment, including a special appearance by “Election Man.” Attendees can also send Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration Chairwoman Tori Silas and Registration Manager Erica Hamilton swimming in the dunk tank!
According to post-2020 election Census data, one in four Americans are not registered to vote or do not know whether they are registered to vote. These events help to ensure Cobb County residents are vote-ready for the upcoming Municipal Election and 2024’s Presidential Preference Primary and General Election.
Eligible citizens should know that the final day to register for the November 7, 2023, Municipal General Election is October 10, 2023.
In addition to the big event, the Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration celebrates National Voter Registration Month with several pop-up voter registration drives throughout the county. Locations will be posted on the Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration website at www.cobbelections.org.
