Voter Registration Deadline for Presidential Preference Primary Approaching

The deadline for voter registration for the Presidential Preference Primary Election is rapidly approaching, as all voters interested in voting in the election must be registered by Monday, February 12.

The Presidential Preference Primary Election will allow members of each political party to select their preference of which candidate they wish to represent the party in the nationwide General Election in November.

Vying for the Republican nomination is former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and Texas businessman Ryan Binkley. Fellow former legislators Ron DeSantis and Chris Christie, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy were in the fight for the nomination until recently, when they announced the suspension of their campaigns. In total, of the needed 1,215 delegate votes needed to secure the nomination, Trump has collected 32 delegate votes, while Haley remains at 17 delegate votes.

In previous Presi- continued from page

dential Preference Primary elections throughout the nation, Trump has come out on top, winning between 51%-55% of the vote in New Hampshire and Iowa. Haley earned 43% of the vote in New Hampshire, and split the vote for 19% of the ballots cast in the Iowa Republican primary election.

As for the Democratic Party, current President Joe Biden, U.S. Representative Dean Phillips (Minnesota), and author/speaker Marianne Williamson will go head-to-head for the nomination.

In the previous Presidential Preference Primary in New Hampshire, Biden swept the race, earning 66.8% of the party’s vote, while Phillips trailed with 19.6%, and Williamson took home 4.0%. The candidates will need around 1,910 delegate votes to secure their nomination, but have not received any of these delegates due to the Democratic National Party having stripped New Hampshire of its delegates.

Georgia voters who wish to participate in the state’s Presidential Preference Primary Election, which is slated for Tuesday, March 12, should register online or at their local Board of Elections and Registration office by Monday, February 12. This date also marks the last day to submit a change of address form prior to the election so that voters’ polling precincts may be determined by their address.
