Know Your Rights as a Georgia Voter!
Did you know that if you or a family member have difficulty reading or writing in English, you can bring a translator with you to the polls?
This can be a family member, friend, or community member. The federal Voting Rights Act protects your ability to have a translator at the polls. It is your right! If you or a loved one encounter any issues, or are told you cannot use an interpreter to help you vote, please contact 866-OUR-VOTE or 888-VE-Y-VOTA (Spanish).
Make a PLan to Vote
Step One: Check your voter registration.
Double-check your voter registration at weall.vote/avil.
Step Two: Decide whether to vote early, by mail, or on Election Day.
In Georgia, you have three different options for casting your vote: early in-person voting, voting by mail, or voting on Election Day.
Early in person: From Oct. 17 to Nov. 4, you can vote early in person. This is the easiest way to make sure your vote is counted! Check out https://elections.sos.ga.gov/Elections/advancedVotingInfo.do or contact your county election office for information on hours and locations. During this period, you are able to vote at any Advanced Voting location in your county.
Voting by mail: You can request an absentee ballot through https://mvp.sos.ga.gov or through your county election office. The last day to request a ballot is Oct. 28, so don’t delay in submitting your request! You can return your ballot via mail or in person to your county election office. It must be received no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day — so return it right away!
Election Day: On Nov. 8, you can cast a ballot at your assigned polling location from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Double-check your registration status and your Election Day voting location at https://mvp.sos.ga.gov. On Election Day, you must vote at your assigned polling location.
Don’t forget to bring your government-issued ID! A driver’s license, free voter ID card, passport, or student ID from a Georgia public college all work.
STEP THREE: BRING A BUDDY.
Invite a friend or family member to come with you. Ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they are planning to vote and what their voting plan is!
Step Four: VOTE.
Make your voice heard and participate in our democracy!
