ATLANTA -- After an aborted initial round of voting, the three finalists for Georgia's new licence plate have been chosen from designs submitted by the public.
Initially, internet voting on the finalists ended up with only the designs that were shown that included the sticker "In God We Trust" in the mock-ups. Many people did not understand that the sticker is available for all Georgia license plates, and can be purchased at license branches for $1.
As a result, officials said they would begin the voting once again, with the sticker removed - in order not to prejudice voting for any one of the plates.
The finalists were announced Monday.
Gov. Nathan Deal, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Revenue Commissioner Douglas MacGinnitie will announce the winning design at a news conference next week.
The winning design will be used for new Georgia license plates, which will be issued beginning in 2012.
