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.

The phrase, which had been incorporated into some of designs, is actually an optional sticker that can be purchased for $1.

More than 400,000 votes were cast during the initial online voting period. A panel of Georgia art professors had narrowed the selection from 500 entries to the eight semifinalists, which were cut to three finalists by the public.

The voting is back on for all eight semifinalists. To cast a vote, visit the Georgia Department of Revenue's website.

Voting will be open for three weeks.

The state will begin issuing the plate next year.
