Early Voting Begins in Georgia Today

June 14, 2022

What Deadlines and Information Your Audience Needs To Know

As of today, Monday, June 13, every county in Georgia has started in-person early voting for Georgia’s June 21 primary runoff elections.

Early voting will be available through June 17, and voters can cast a ballot at any polling location in their county. Due to changes in the absentee ballot process under SB 202, early in-person voting is highly recommended for those who are able. Individuals unable to vote early in person will still be able to vote by absentee ballot if they have already applied for and received one, or at their assigned precinct on Election Day. 

Voters can find their sample ballot online on their My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov. Instructions for locating sample ballots can be found on DPG’s website.

We encourage all Georgians to make a plan to vote early using the information below and on DPG’s website, and to call the Voter Protection Hotline at 1-888-730-5816 with questions.

If you cannot vote early in person and have already requested and received an absentee ballot, fill it out and return it ASAP once you receive it.

  • When: All absentee ballots must be returned and received by your county registrar’s office by 7:00pm on Election Day June 21.
  • How: You can return your ballot one of three ways:
    • Ballot drop box: You can drop your ballot off at a ballot drop box during early voting hours in the county in which you are registered to vote until June 17. Contact your county registrar’s office to find your county’s drop box locations.
    • Drop off in person: You can bring your ballot directly to your county registrar’s office during business hours by Election Day on June 21. 
    • Mail: If you are unable to drop your ballot off in person, you can mail your ballot back to your county registrar’s office. If choosing this option, we recommend you consider rushed shipping so it arrives by Election Day on June 21.
