ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Georgia’s election day is only about 49 days away.

The last day to register to vote is Oct. 11. Early voting begins on Oct. 17. Nov. 7 is the last day to register in any runoff elections that may occur. And of course, Election Day is Nov. 8.

You can also register to vote in person if you prefer. If you have already registered to vote, you can check your registration and remind family and friends to also get registered.

If you can’t vote in person, voting absentee is the only way to make your ballot count for key races like the governor and U.S. senate. The deadline to request an absentee ballot is Oct. 28. Ballots will start being mailed out on Oct. 10.
