CANTON — The Cherokee County Elections and Voter Registration Office is reminding voters that Oct. 9 is the last day to register before the Nov. 6 general election.

Local voters can register online at voter.cherokeega .com or at the Cherokee County Elections and Voter Registration office at 400 East Main St. in downtown Canton.

Voters can check their registration status, mail-in application and ballot status, and poll locations before going to the polls on Election Day by going online to the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at mvp.sos.state.ga.us. Sample ballots personalized for specific voting districts are also available on the website.

Janet Munda, supervisor of elections and registration, said registered voters who have moved to or within Cherokee County will need to fill out a new voter registration application and can mail it — postmarked by Oct. 9 — to the county’s election office at 400 East Main St., Canton, GA 30144.

Registration applications are available at the election office, libraries and online at voter.cherokeega.com.

There are approximately 138,000 registered voters in Cherokee County, according to the elections and registration office.

Munda said her office has already mailed 1,800 ballots out to voters who requested them by mail. By comparison, 10,000 ballots were mailed out in 2008, she said.

“We’re a long way from being there,” said Munda.

Munda said it was “too early to say,” when asked what her prediction was for voter turnout in Cherokee County.

“I think we’re going to be busy,” she said.
