  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! As long as you're registered, you can request to have your ballot mailed to you, you just have to do that by October 28th for the general election. Then, you can fill it out and mail it back by November 8th for the general election and as soon as possible for the general runoffs. This is called an absentee ballot. You can request your absentee ballot here.

6 Opportunities

since you last voted…

Since 2020, it’s become harder to cast your ballot in Georgia. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:

When making a plan to vote…

  • You now have to include an ID number from a Georgia-issued ID (driver’s or identification card) when applying for an absentee ballot.
  • You’ll also need to include that ID number (or the last four digits of your SSN) on the outer envelope (it’ll be covered when it’s sealed, don’t worry).
  • Early voting is now the two Saturdays before Election Day, only. (Some places may also be open on Sunday – check your county website for details.)
  • There’s now a deadline for requesting your absentee ballot: eleven days before the election (we did the math – that’s October 28th.)
  • Third party groups that help distribute absentee ballot applications will need special forms that indicate that it didn’t come from the government. They also can’t pre-fill anything or fill it out for you anymore.

When casting your vote…

  • It’s now a felony to return someone else’s absentee ballot (with exceptions for the disabled and others with caretakers).
  • Drop boxes are now legal in Georgia – but check your county website for info on the locations and hours, since those may have changed since 2020.
  • It’s now illegal to take a photo of a completed ballot or vote marker. (Why?)
  • It’s now illegal to observe someone else completing their ballot.
  • There’s now a hotline that goes to the secretary of state’s office where you can report suspected voter intimidation, fraud, or illegal election activities. (No way this gets abused… right?)
