Local election officials and voting advocacy groups across Georgia are again trying to drum up early-voting attendance with their second annual #PostThePeach social media campaign to encourage Georgians to get to the polls ahead of Election Day.
Early voters are encouraged to take a photo of their “I’m A Georgia Voter” sticker, post it on social media with the #PostThePeach hashtag and then challenge friends and family to get out to the polls early, too.
One caution: It is illegal to take a picture of your ballot or while voting.
Officials said early voting eases congestion on Election Day and is more convenient for voters. More importantly, they said it allows time for a voter to correct any problem that may occur at the polls, including questions about registration.
Voters can go online to check their registration status and find early-voting locations in their county via the secretary of state’s voter Web page or by contact their local elections office..
Early voting across Georgia began Monday and runs through Oct. 30.
