Absentee & Advance Voting

Absentee Voting In Person

You may vote by absentee ballot in person at the Registrar's Office beginning 21 days before Election Day and up to the Friday before Election Day.


Absentee Voting By Mail

A voter who requests an absentee ballot by mail is not required to provide a reason why he or she is voting absentee.

How do I apply for an Absentee Ballot?

You may request an absentee ballot as early as 180 days before an election. Absentee ballots must be received by the voter registration office by 7:00pm on Election Day. No absentee ballots are issued on the day before or the day of an election. You may download an absentee ballot application from http://sos.ga.gov/index.php/Elections/absentee_voting_in_georgia and mail it or fax it to the voter registration office. The application must be in writing and must contain the address to which the ballot is to be mailed, sufficient information to identify you as a voter, and the election in which you wish to vote. If you are physically disabled or living temporarily outside your county of residence, a close relative may apply for an absentee ballot for you.

Applications for absentee ballots by uniform or overseas voters (pursuant to the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act) can be accepted more than 180 days prior to primary or election in which a federal candidate appears on the ballot as well as for any runoffs resulting there from including presidential preference primaries for two general elections.

May I receive assistance with my absentee ballot?

A physically disabled or illiterate voter may receive assistance from another voter in the same county or municipality or from the same category of relatives who can make an application for or deliver an absentee ballot. If the voter is outside of the county or municipality, a notary public can provide such assistance. Any person who assists another person to vote absentee must complete an oath prescribed by law demonstrating the statutory disability and that the ballot was completed as the voter desired. Other than federal elections, no person may assist more than ten voters in a primary, election, or runoff. A candidate on the ballot, or a relative of a candidate on the ballot, may not offer assistance during the election to any voter who is not related to the candidate.
