COVID-19 Advisory: Secretary of State Raffensperger has announced that all active voters will be mailed absentee ballot request forms for the primary. Any voter who hadn't cast a ballot previously can complete the ballot request and mail it (55 cent postage is required) or take a picture/scan email it to the county clerk's office. When voters receive their ballots, they will be able to vote for any races in which they did not previously cast a ballot (during early voting or absentee), but must return the ballot by mail or in person (no emailed ballots will be accepted). In-person voting will still take place.
Who is eligible to request an absentee ballot and vote by mail?
Any registered Georgia voter can vote absentee. No excuse is required.
Do you need to submit ID with your absentee ballot request?
No. Unless you are a first-time voter – see Voter Registration section above.
Do you need to submit ID with your ballot?
No, but the signature on your mail ballot must match your voter registration signature.
