In observance of National Voter Registration Day, MARTA will host organizations that will be conducting voter registration activities on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at the Five Points Station.

Registration activities will take place from 9 a.m. to noon and from 3 to 7 p.m. Space is limited and will be allotted to organizations on a first-come, first-serve basis. In order to participate in this non-partisan event, interested organizations must register in advance. Approved organizations will also be allowed to register voters at MARTA’s end-of-line stations: College Park, Doraville, H. E. Holmes, Kensington and North Springs.

Voter registration activities must not interfere with MARTA customers entering and exiting the station or impede the flow of customers in bus loops, at bus stops, on trains and buses or rail platforms. No amplifiers or bullhorns are allowed and voter registration volunteers and staff are strictly prohibited from soliciting campaign donations or advertising their affiliation with any candidate.

Each participating organization or agency will be responsible for bringing the voter registration applications and any required forms from the county registrar’s office or the office of the Georgia Secretary of State.

Organizations/agencies interested in participating in National Voter Registration Day should contact Toni Thornton-Sanford, Community Outreach Planner, at 404.848.5423 or tthornton@itsmarta.com, by 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23.
