(WTVM) – The deadline to register to vote in the Georgia Presidential Primary is Feb. 1, and there is a new app that makes registration easier.

The GA Votes app is available in your phone's app store and allows you to register to vote by entering your driver's license number and other personal information. When you do this, the app goes to the Department of Driver's Services database and gets your electronic signature; this becomes your record of voter registration.

You can also register two other ways: by going to your local Board of Elections office during regular business hours or click here to go the online voter registration page.

The Presidential Primary in Georgia is March 1.
