Jujuan Odom, 23, votes at a voting station at the Southwest Branch Library in Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Residents of South Fulton voted today for mayor and city council positions. 

Today is the last day to register to vote in Georgia ahead of crucial local elections looming Nov. 7.

Here’s how: 

You can register, confirm or change your registration status online through the Secretary of State Office’s online “my voter page” website: www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
