OPTION 1: Vote Early in Person

If you can, make a plan now to vote early in person.

  • When: Early in-person voting runs from Monday, February 19th to Friday, March 8th, including Saturdays. Some counties will also offer Sunday voting.
  • Where: You can vote early in-person at any polling place in your county.
  • How: Sign in to the My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov or check your county elections office website to find your early voting locations and times.

OPTION 2: Vote By Mail

If you have already requested an absentee ballot, return it ASAP once you receive it.

  • When: Ballots will be mailed to voters who have requested them starting February 12. They must be returned and received by your elections office by 7:00 pm on Election Day, March 12th.
  • How: You can return your ballot one of three ways:
    • Return to a ballot dropbox: You can bring your ballot to a dropbox during voting hours between now and March 8. Contact your county elections office to find your nearest drop box locations.
    • Drop off in person: You can bring your ballot directly to your county elections office any time up to 7:00 pm on Election Day, March 12th. On Election Day, you must return your absentee ballot to your elections office and cannot bring it to a voting location. If you prefer to vote in person, however, you can go to your Election Day polling place, cancel your mail ballot, and vote in person.
    • Mail: If you are unable to drop your ballot off in person, you can mail your ballot back to your county elections office. If choosing this option, mail your ballot as soon as you receive it. All absentee ballots must be RECEIVED by the Elections Office by 7:00 pm on Tuesday, March 12th.

If you have not yet requested an absentee ballot, we encourage you to make a plan to vote early in-person. But if voting by mail is easiest for you, request your ballot ASAP.

  • When: March 1st is the last day to request an absentee ballot.
  • Where: Requests must be returned to your county elections office. Visit the Secretary of State’s website HERE to find the address, email and fax for your county’s office.
  • How: Download an absentee ballot request form at this link: https://securemyabsenteeballot.sos.ga.gov/resource/1688626692000/AbsenteeBallotPDF. After printing and filling it out, you can return it one of three ways:
    • Mail: You can mail your request to your county elections office. If mailing your request, we recommend you do so as soon as possible so it arrives in time by the March 1st deadline. 
    • Email or fax: You can email or fax your request to your county elections office.
    • Drop off in person: You can drop your request off in person at your county elections office.
