Voting in Georgia
To register to vote, either fill out and send in a Voter Registration Application or sign up when you renew your driver's license. After you register, the Secretary of State will send your precinct card to your county who will then send it to you. Although, it is important to note that you don't need to bring your precinct card to vote. Its purpose is to let you know where you need to go in order to vote.
What Else Should I Know?
How do I request an absentee ballot?
Fill out, sign and send in by mail, fax or email the Absentee Ballot Application. After your county election office reviews your application, you'll receive your ballot at either the postal address or email address you noted on your application.
When is my absentee ballot due?
For voters within the country, all absentee ballots must arrive at your county election office by Election Day. If you're currently a military or overseas voter and you post your absentee ballot on Election Day, make sure it arrives within three days.
I'm in the military. Can I still get an absentee ballot?
Yes. The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) allows those who reside outside of the United States a chance to vote. The Secretary of State provides this useful resource to help you navigate the process. If you are a UOCAVA citizen who sent in your absentee ballot application but haven't heard from your county election office, fill out and submit the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot. To vote for federal offices, you can write in either the candidate's name or the proper political party. To vote for state and local offices, you must write in the candidate's full name.
