ATLANTA  — Online voting has begun to choose Georgia's new license plate.

More than 500 entries were submitted by the public to design Georgia's next standard issue license plate which is set to be produced next year. A panel of Georgia college and university art professors participated in narrowing the selection to eight designs.

Online voting ends July 8 and the three license plates that win the most votes will be presented to Gov. Nathan Deal, who will announce the winning design on July 15.

State Revenue Commissioner Doug MacGinnitie encouraged Georgians to "vote for their favorite design that best represents the state of Georgia."

Why vote? It seems like the

Why vote? It seems like the way the article was written that "Raw Deal" has the only vote that counts! Looks like the "In God We Trust" part can be done away with by a county sticker.

I voted for #4. It looked the least like a saturday morning cartoon. Why do we need new plates anyway? What's wrong with the old ones? Government WASTE.

You've got to be kidding. By

You've got to be kidding.
By the new rules, I will have to pay an extra $60 to keep my "Dog & Cat" tag (which originallly had a one time $25 fee), but nothing extra to switch to the present tag. Then, the "no extra fee tag" will be replaced by a NEW "no extra fee tag" in 1 year????? No wonder Georgia is in debt. This is just plain stupid!!! Many other states keep license plates un in service as long as you can still read the numbers and letters. And what part of "one time fee" does Gov. Deal not understand???????
