Register to Vote

Eligible Georgians can register to vote through the Secretary of State’s Office.

How Do I Register to Vote?

  • Make Sure You're Eligible

    To register to vote, you must:

    • Be a citizen of the United States

    • Be a legal resident of the county

    • Be at least 17 1/2 years of age to register and 18 years of age to vote

    • Not be serving a sentence for conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude

    • Have not been found mentally incompetent by a judge 

     
  • Fill Out & Submit a Voter Registration Application

     

     
  • Check for your Precinct Card

    After you register, the Secretary of State will send your precinct card to your county, who will then send it to you. Your precinct card lets you know where you need to go in order to vote. It is important to note that you don't need to bring your precinct card to vote.

    If you have misplaced or have not received your precinct card within 3 to 4 weeks of submitting your voter registration application, contact your local county registration office to request a new precinct card or to check the status of your application. You can also verify that you’re properly registered to vote by visiting the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page and submitting your information.

    • Locate your polling place by logging into the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page.

    • On Election Day, polling stations open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. If you can't vote during those times, you can either vote early or send in an absentee ballot.

    • When you arrive at your polling station, you'll need to bring a valid photo ID such as a driver's license, passport, or voter identification card.

    • The polls offer audio ballots for voters who are blind or have low vision and booths for voters in wheelchairs. If you need help with your ballot, you can ask a family member or friend to come with you to the polls and fill the ballot in with your choices.

    • If you move, you must file a notice of your new address in writing to your County Board of Registrar's Office, or submit a new voter registration application.
