Certain Legislation

Issues of Concern

Support Access for Juvenile Voting Rights

The right to vote is one of the fundamental rights of being an American citizen. In Georgia, persons who are 17 years and 6 months of age can register to vote (GA. CODE ANN. Section 21-2-217(c)). In Georgia, persons who are 18 years of age can legally vote. Our youth, regardless of condition or station in life, are entitled to that right.

End Mass Incarceration Georgia Network is calling upon county election officials to ensure that the youth of Georgia, who are under the supervision of a Department of Juvenile Justice facility and who are of eligible age, be afforded all opportunities to:

(1) register to vote; and

(2) cast their ballots in all applicable elections held in the state of Georgia.
