In-Person Voting in the General Runoff Election
January 5, 2021: Quick Reference Guide
Key Facts for Georgia Voters:
- You can check your registration status by going to: https://georgia.gov/register-vote. If you are not registered, you have until December 7, 2020 to do so.
- Advanced (early) voting varies by county but may be available from December 14th– January 1st. Check your County Board of Registrars Office at https://elections.sos.ga.gov/Elections/countyregistrars.do for county-specific dates, hours, and locations.
- Election Day is Tuesday January 5, 2021. Go to “My Voter Page” to find the polling location in your precinct.
- You will need to present an acceptable photo ID (for example, a GA Driver’s License or State ID, US Passport, Military ID, or Tribal ID) to verify your identity.
- If you do NOT have acceptable identification when you go to vote in-person, you can still cast a provisional ballot. However, you MUST present an acceptable photo ID to your County Board of Registrars Office by 5:00 pm on Friday, January 8, 2021 for your vote to count.
- Poll workers can assist voters in using Georgia’s new voting machines and scanners.
