If you want to vote by mail, follow these simple steps:
No, everyone in Georgia has the opportunity vote by mail, but it is completely voluntary. As far as we know now, polling locations will still be open for in-person voting. This action to send every active registered voter an absentee ballot application is to encourage people to vote by mail as we all work to "flatten the curve" of the coronavirus pandemic.
Election Day is now June 9th!
It was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In-person early voting will start on May 18th. If you are voting my mail, just follow the instructions and return the ballot after you have decided the candidates you wish to vote for. (You know what to do if you live in Georgia’s 13th.)
You can trust it as much as you can in-person voting (if not more). Voting by mail (official known as absentee voting) is not new in Georgia. It's available every year to anyone who wants to use it. If you would like to have some assurance that you vote was counted, after sending the ballot in the mail, you can "track" it by checking the Georgia "My Voter Page" to see when it has arrived and been processed. See the link below.
If you already voted early, you are still received this ballot application because when you early voted in March that was only for the presidential election. When the state postponed that election, they in effect, combined that election (the Presidential Preferential Primary) with the General Primary (where you vote for everyone else). So please, we still need you to vote in this election even if you already voted for your presidential choice.
The state of Georgia allows anyone to vote by mail! Read the new Absentee Voting Guide to assist you with the absentee voting (vote by mail) process.
