Some inmates in Georgia jails are being registered to vote in the November 4th election.
In DeKalb County, the sheriff's office helped almost 400 jail inmates request absentee ballots and registered an additional 441 inmates for the upcoming election.
DeKalb County Sheriff Tom Brown said the jail was across the street from the voter registration office. He said he was happy to help eligible inmates, exercise a right for which so many people have fought and sacrificed their lives.
Monday is the deadline for Georgia voters to register for next month's election.
In Georgia, felons cannot vote if they are incarcerated or on parole or probation. Convicted felons are "automatically eligible to vote" after completing their sentences.
