How to Vote in Georgia
Requirements to Vote In Georgia:
Be a United States citizen.
You have to be a resident of Georgia and live in the county and voting precinct where you will vote.
Georgia requires ID in order to vote.
You can register to vote when you are 17.5 years old, but you must be 18 by election day to vote.
There are no length of residency requirements in Georgia, so if you have just moved here you can register to vote on day one.
If you have been convicted of a felony you must be "off paper" to register. "Off paper" means that you've served your sentence, completed probation/parole and paid any fines that are related to your sentence; or have received a pardon for your conviction.
If you have been declared mentally incompetent by a judge, you cannot register to vote in Georgia.
Voting by Absentee Ballot
Request your Absentee Ballot: https://ballotrequest.sos.ga.gov/
You will receive all the forms and envelopes necessary for marking and return of the ballot.
Fill out and sign your absentee ballot according to the instructions provided.
Failure to complete your ballot correctly could cause your ballot not to be counted.
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 3 days.
You can also drop your absentee ballot off at a drop-off location in your county.
Call your county registrar to find a drop box in your county: https://elections.sos.ga.gov/Elections/countyregistrars.do
Verify that your Absentee Ballot was received: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
If your ballot is rejected, your county elections office will contact you with a document to “cure” or correct your ballot envelope.
