ATLANTA (AP) — State officials say nearly 12,000 people have taken advantage of Georgia’s new online voter system, either registering for the upcoming May 20 primary or updating their information.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp said Tuesday that it was “enormously gratifying” that so many Georgia residents took advantage of the new system, which was launched three weeks ago.

Kemp says about 6,800 new voters used the system to register, while about 5,000 already registered voters accessed the system to update their information.

The system is available online or through the “My Voter Page” mobile app. Monday was the deadline to register to vote in the May 20 primary. The deadline to register for the general election is Oct. 6.
