The Community Assistance Center, a Sandy Springs-based nonprofit that serves the poor in that city and in Dunwoody, is offering residents a chance to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election.

Through Oct. 5, residents can register at the center’s boutique, 8607 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, weekdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 election is Oct. 9.

The voter registration drive was organized by a group of center volunteers in conjunction with My Vote Matters, a nonpartisan nonprofit.

To register to vote in Georgia you must meet certain eligibility requirements. You can register if you are: a United States citizen, a legal resident of a Georgia county and at least 17½ years old. You must be 18 before or on Election Day.

To check to see if you are already registered or if your registration information is up to date, visit the Georgia My Voter Page at For more information on the center’s voter registration initiative, visit
