Register today to vote in March

By Billy Corriher

There are 115,076 people registered to vote in Clayton County, but it's not too late for you to be one of them.

Today is the last day to register to vote in the March 2 presidential primary/special election.

The ballot will feature nominees for the Republican and Democratic presidential ticket and a referendum on the Georgia state flag. Any registered voters can vote for the Republican or Democratic candidates.

The controversial vote on the state flag will ask voters to choose between two flags. One is the flag approved by the state legislature at its last session and the other was approved by former Gov. Roy Barnes that featured all the state's previous flags along the bottom, including the discarded flag bearing the Confederate battle emblem.

Clayton County voters can register to vote at any county library, any city hall or while renewing their driver's license at the DMV. Information on registering online can be found at http://www.sos.state.ga.us/elections/applications.htm.
