ATLANTA (AP) — Secretary of State Brian Kemp is declaring September as Voter Registration Month in Georgia.

Kemp said in a statement this week that he is working with various officials to make eligible voters aware of registration deadlines and requirements for the upcoming general election on Nov. 5.

Georgia residents have until Oct. 7 to register to vote for the general election.

Residents can download a mail-in voter registration application on the Secretary of State’s website or obtain the form at their local county elections office, public library or government offices. Registration is also offered when residents renew or apply for a driver’s license.

The National Association of Secretaries of State established September as National Voter Registration Month to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.
