Absentee ballots began going out to Georgia voters this week ahead of the state’s May 24 primary, with anyone not registered to vote facing an April 26 deadline to get their names on the rolls ahead of the election.
If you want to cast a ballot in person, early voting begins May 2 statewide. Check with your local elections office to see where to go.
How to register or check voting status
If you need to register:
- For online voter registration, go to the secretary of state’s website and, under the elections tab, click “Register to Vote.”
- Download a voter registration application (http://sos.ga.gov/index.php/Elections/register_to_vote), mail in the completed form.
- Check the “voter registration” box when you renew or apply for your driver’s license.
- College students can obtain Georgia voter registration forms, or the necessary forms to register in any U.S. state, from their school registrar’s office.
