Georgia`s "Sportsmen Voter Registration Bill"

Friday, May 14, 2004

In the first law of its kind in the nation, Georgia will now allow citizens to register to vote while they get their hunting and fishing licenses. The "Sportsmen Voter Registration Bill" (SB 541), signed into law yesterday by Governor Sonny Perdue (R) and supported by NRA, was patterned after the national "motor voter" law and requires businesses who sell hunting and fishing licenses to act as a voter registration site as well. The Georgia General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the measure. Special thanks go out to Governor Perdue, Senator Preston Smith (R-52) and supporters in the Georgia General Assembly for recognizing the importance of providing ample opportunities to register citizens to vote.
