Georgia Power : encourages its 7,000 employees across the state to vote

10/02/2020 | 01:46pm EST

ATLANTA, Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the November 3 general election approaching, Georgia Power encourages all employees to take part in the upcoming election and cast their vote. To assist employees, as well as customers, in the voting process, the company is providing voter information resources that are easily accessible for all voters. The company is also reminding employees to continue following COVID-19 safety measures closely when voting, including practicing social distancing and wearing facial coverings.

"At Georgia Power, we believe in being a citizen wherever we serve – engaging with and supporting communities across the state," said Paul Bowers, chairman, president and CEO of Georgia Power. "One of the most fundamental ways our employees can continue that commitment is to get out and vote. It's important that each of us make our voices heard by casting a ballot to help shape our future, and that's exactly what we're encouraging our team to do." 

The company has assembled the following sites from the State of Georgia and the Secretary of State in one place to provide voter information resources where you can find key election dates, learn how to register to vote, identify your polling location or secure an absentee ballot, and view your sample ballot.

Voter Information Resources:
State of Georgia voter resource page: www.georgia.gov/voting 
Secretary of State on-line voter registration: https://registertovote.sos.ga.gov/GAOLVR/welcome.do#no-back-button 
State of Georgia/Secretary of State absentee ballot registration: https://georgia.gov/vote-absentee-ballot 
Secretary of State "My Voter" page https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do 

In order to vote in this year's general election, individuals must have registered by October 5. Early voting begins on Monday, October 12, and lasts through Friday, October 30. Voters are encouraged to vote early, if possible, to help with social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and to help avoid long lines on Election Day, November 3.
