The Cobb GOP has opened up online pre-registration for the Precinct Mass Meeting (pg 23 for anyone with insomnia). The following is an excerpt of an email from Cobb Chairman Joe Dendy. I’m thoroughly pleased that Cobb was “first to market” with online registration last cycle. This year voter data is immediately sync’d with the Secretary of State data to confirm voter status.
Last year, the Cobb GOP introduced the first online pre-registration for Precinct Mass Meetings available in the state, and it was very successful with about 2/3 of the attendees taking advantage of the pre-registration. This made it possible to have everyone checked in and seated ten minutes before the starting time.
This year we are proud to announce we have taken this process to a fully automated platform. Beginning tomorrow morning (January 21) at 8:00 a.m., Pre-registration for the Precinct Mass Meeting will open. Pre-registration is a two step process and is very user friendly and easy to follow.
The registration screens will now capture pertinent information that allows us to access the Secretary of State’s website and confirm your voter status immediately. … As a pre-registered attendee the only information needed when you arrive on February 9th is a valid government issued photo ID, like a Georgia drivers license, military ID card, passport, etc.
Bridg Note: Although I registered online last time, I was not entered under “returning user.” Go ahead and just register as a new person. I submitted my information and immediately got an email with details of the mass meeting, a confirmation of my login information, and a link to complete registration. When I clicked the link, I got a “Verification. Registration Successful.” If you click “Proceed to Registration”, it takes you to your Personal Info page. From there you can see that you’re pre-registered, your Voter Information Data (sync’d with SOS records), and a list of your District numbers.
High five, Cobb GOP. “COBB: We have our $#!% together.” You can trademark that if you’d like 😉
