Just a reminder that voting for the new Georgia license plate ends on Monday, August 8th at 3 p.m.
Just a few notes on the vote:
- I posted about some of the confusion and controversy over the optional $1 “In God We Trust” sticker here.
- The top three vote getters will be passed along to Governor Deal, who will make the final decision.
- If all of this seems overly peachy — and it is! — there’s good reason: “The Code requires the license plate to ‘advertise, popularize and otherwise promote Georgia as the Peach State.'”
- And there’s this disturbing proviso: “As each image is an artistâ€™s rendering, the Department of Revenue reserves the right to make alterations due to limitations in the production process.”
I’ve put the choices below, but you need to go to this page to vote (for #4).
