Voting Methods
Step-by-Step

Now through Nov 3, 2020

Vote by mail (absentee ballots)

You can vote by mail with an absentee ballot.

Step 1: Fill out the absentee ballot application found online here.

Step 2: Once you receive the absentee ballot, fill it out, and mail it in to your county's registrar as soon as possible or drop it off at a county drop-off location (ask your county registrar for drop-off locations) before election day.


Absentee ballots are mailed starting around Sept. 19, 2020. Notify your county's registrar if you don't receive an absentee ballot.

Want to vote in person or didn't receive your absentee ballot? Go to your voting location to cancel your absentee ballot and vote. O.C.G.A. 21-2-388 gives you the right to vote in person if you cancel your absentee ballot. If you have the ballot, bring it. Having it will make it easier to cancel.

Only you, a family member, someone living in your house, or a care giver may submit your absentee ballot.
