what’s new in georgia voting since 2020

Hi Georgia. You might have heard that your state passed a big bill making changes to election procedures, and not for the better. Don't worry, we'll break down everything you need to know to make sure your ballot gets counted. When it comes to absentee ballot applications, you'll need to provide an ID number from a Georgia issues ID or a photocopy of another type of ID. Georgia voters are also no longer able to request an absentee ballot online. Make sure that you get your absentee ballot application in early, because the deadline is now 11 days before election day. When you mail back your absentee ballot, make sure to provide a Georgia ID number or your Social Security Number on the envelope. Finally, when you're turning your ballot in, double check the dropbox locations in your community, as they have likely changed since 2020.
