Important Information: The law on absentee ballots changed with Senate Bill 202. Please read the information below on how to apply for an absentee ballot.
1. Voters must request an absentee ballot application. Click the link above to print the new application, call our office at 770-267-1337 to request one to be mailed, or go to My Voter Page on the Secretary of State website to fill out the application online. (The My Voter Page site is also where the status of the mailed ballot can be checked.)
2. The following information must be provided with the application:
*Address as registered
*Address to mail ballot to, if different than registered address
*Date of Birth
*Driver's License or State ID Number, or last 4 digits of the Social Security Number must be written on the application. If the voter does not have one of those, a copy of a Military ID, Government issued ID, College ID from a State or University, Voter ID (offered in our office); utility bill, bank statement or paycheck that shows your registered address must be attached.
3. Due to the new law, absentee ballots may only be requested between 78 and 11 days prior to an election. If an application is received after the 11 day deadline prior to the election, the application will be rejected and the voter will need to vote at one of the Advanced Voting locations or on Election Day at their assigned polling location.
4. Ballots must be mailed from our office. They can not be picked up at the Elections Office.
