License Plate Revote Opens Monday

 

ATLANTA (AP) -- The public is again invited to weigh in on Georgia's new license plate design. 

Online voting will reopen at 3 p.m. Monday.

Gov. Nathan Deal had planned to announce the winner of an earlier design contest last Friday, but the state scrapped its plans over public confusion on whether the motto "In God We Trust" would be on the plate.

Vote on License Plate Designs

The eight semi-finalist license plate designs have been posted for the Governor's contest.

You can now vote on your favorite until July 15.
