Absentee Voting

Eligible voters desiring to vote by mail may do so without providing a reason or identification. However, voters who registered for the first time in Georgia by mail and did not provide identification, are required to provide at the time of voting, one of six acceptable forms of photo identification. If not, a copy of current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other governmental document showing the name and address of the voter is sufficient. Those voters not having the proper form of identification shall vote a Provisional Ballot.

Voters may request an Absentee Ballot by mail beginning 180 days prior to any election. However, the last day for mailing an Absentee Ballot is the Friday before the Primary or Election.

Absentee Ballot Request

There is a NEW ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST PORTALIf you want to receive an absentee ballot for the General Election, simply go to the portal and fill out all the information needed and the request is sent to us electronically. This portal eliminates some of the wait time in having to call our office and wait for the application to come in the mail and then only to have to mail it back to us for approval. This process allows the Secretary of States Office to match your  information against what we already have on file. You may download a PDF for your records showing you requested a ballot through the portal. This PDF is for your records only. 


Voters who do not have access to a computer may also mail or fax a written request for an Absentee Ballot. The written request should include:

  • Address where ballot is to be mailed
  • Date of Birth
  • Daytime Contact Phone Number
  • Election Name and Date (i.e. General Primary Election - May 22, 2018)
  • Party Affiliation (Democratic, Republican or Non-Partisan)
  • Voter’s Written Signature Name and Address as Registered to Vote
