  • Can I register the same day I want to vote?

    Sadly, no. So do it now! Then reward yourself with a cookie.

  • Do I have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in my primary?

    Nope! Georgia voters do not register by Party. You can participate in the primary of any political party by declaring your affiliation with that party at the polls on the day of the primary. However, be sure that you vote on the same party's ballot for the primary election and for the primary election runoff. For example, if you vote in the Democratic party primary on May 24th, you may not vote in the Republican primary run-off on June 21st (and vice-versa).

  • 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 May 13th for the first primary election and by June 10th for the primary runoff. Then, you can fill it out and mail it back by May 24th for the primary and June 21st for the primary runoff. This is called an absentee ballot. You can request your absentee ballot here.

  • Can I vote early?

    Yes! For the primary election, early voting is available every day except Sunday between May 2nd and May 20th. In some locations it is also available on Sunday.

  • Do I need an ID?

    If you are voting by mail, only first-time voters who didn't verify their identity when registering will need an ID. A Georgia driver's license, a free Georgia voter ID card, a U.S. passport, a Military ID, or government-issued employee ID, Tribal ID, or certain student IDs will work. Get the details of what you need from VoteRiders.

what’s new in georgia voting since 2020

Hi Georgia. You might have heard that your state passed a big bill making changes to election procedures, and not for the better. Don't worry, we'll break down everything you need to know to make sure your ballot gets counted. When it comes to absentee ballot applications, you'll need to provide an ID number from a Georgia issues ID or a photocopy of another type of ID. Georgia voters are also no longer able to request an absentee ballot online. Make sure that you get your absentee ballot application in early, because the deadline is now 11 days before election day. When you mail back your absentee ballot, make sure to provide a Georgia ID number or your Social Security Number on the envelope. Finally, when you're turning your ballot in, double check the dropbox locations in your community, as they have likely changed since 2020.
