Title 21, Chapter 2, Section 220
(a) Any person desiring to register as an elector shall apply to do so by making application to a registrar or deputy registrar of such person's county of residence in person, by submission of the federal post card application form as authorized under Code Section 21-2-219, by making application through the Department of Public Safety as provided in Code Section 21-2-221, by making application through designated offices as provided in Code Section 21-2-222, or by making application by mail as provided in Code Section 21-2-223.
(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, whenever a
person makes application to register in person or through the means
specified in this Code section, the person authorized to offer
registration shall inquire as to whether the individual seeking
registration is a citizen of the United States, and the person
offering registration shall not be required to offer registration to
an individual who answers such inquiry with a negative response.
(c) If an applicant fails to provide all of the required information
on the application for voter registration, the board of registrars
shall notify the registrant in writing of the missing information.
The board of registrars shall not determine the eligibility of the
applicant until and unless all required information is supplied by
the applicant. If the initial application is received prior to the
close of voter registration prior to an election, if the applicant
supplies the necessary information on or prior to the date of the
election, and if the applicant is found eligible to vote, the
applicant shall be added to the list of electors and shall be
permitted to vote in the election and any run-off elections
resulting therefrom and subsequent elections. In the event the
elector does not respond to the request for the missing information
within 30 days, the application shall be rejected.
(d) If an applicant submits false information, the board of
registrars shall reject the application and shall refer the
application to the district attorney of the county for criminal
prosecution. If the false information is not discovered until after
the applicant's application has been approved and the applicant's
name added to the list of electors, the giving of such false
information shall be cause to challenge the applicant's right to
remain on the list of electors, which, if sustained, shall result in
such applicant's name being removed from the list and the
application being submitted to the district attorney of the county
for criminal prosecution.
(e) A person registering to vote who is disabled or illiterate may
request assistance from any other person in completing the form for
registration, but the person offering assistance shall sign the
voter registration form in the space provided to identify the person
