Early Voting Continues with Two Weeks Until Election Day in Georgia

May 10, 2022

What Deadlines and Information Your Audience Needs To Know

With just two weeks until the May 24 primary elections in Georgia, it is important that all Georgians make a plan to cast their ballot.

Early voting will continue to run in every county weekdays through May 20 as well as Saturday, May 14. Voters can cast a ballot at any polling location in their county. Due to changes in the absentee ballot process under SB 202, early in-person voting is highly recommended for those who are able. 

Individuals unable to vote early in person will still be able to vote by absentee ballot or at their assigned precinct on Election Day. All absentee ballot requests must be returned and received by the county by this Friday, May 13, so should be submitted via online upload, email, fax, or in-person drop-off to ensure that they are received in time. 

Voters can find their sample ballot online on their My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov. Instructions for locating sample ballots can be found on DPG’s website.

We encourage all Georgians to make a plan to vote early using the information below and on DPG’s website, and to call the Voter Protection Hotline at 1-888-730-5816 with questions.

If you have already requested an absentee ballot, fill it out and return it ASAP once you receive it.

  • When: All absentee ballots must be returned and received by your county registrar’s office by 7:00pm on Election Day May 24.
  • How: You can return your ballot one of three ways:
    • Mail: You can mail your ballot back to your county registrar’s office. If mailing your ballot, we recommend you do so as soon as possible so it arrives by Election Day on May 24.
    • Ballot drop box: You can drop your ballot off at a ballot drop box during early voting hours in the county in which you are registered to vote until May 20. Call your country registrar’s office for ballot drop box locations.
    • Drop off in person: You can bring your ballot directly to your county registrar’s office during business hours by Election Day on May 24. 

If you have not yet requested an absentee ballot, we encourage you to make a plan to vote early in person. But if voting absentee is easiest for you, request your ballot ASAP.

  • When: All absentee ballot requests must be returned and received by your county registrar’s office by close of business on Friday, May 13. 
  • How: Sign in to My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov to print an absentee ballot request form. There are several ways to return your completed and signed form to your county registrar’s office. You can find your country registrar office’s email address, fax number, and mailing address on your My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov. All absentee ballot requests should be submitted via email or fax to ensure your county registrar’s office receives it in time.
    • Upload online: You can upload a scan or photo of your completed and signed absentee ballot request form online on your My Voter Page at mvp.sos.ga.gov.
    • Email or fax: You can email or fax your request to your county registrar’s office. 
    • Drop off in person: You can drop your request off in person at your county registrar’s office. 
    • Mail: You can mail your request to your county registrar’s office. You should only choose this option if you are unable to utilize the other options. If you choose this option, mail your ballot request form in ASAP and consider rushed shipping.
