How to Receive an Absentee Ballot
A completed application must first be received before an absentee ballot is issued. Please call the Voter Registrations and Elections Division at 678.226.7210 and request that an application be mailed or faxed to you, or obtain the form online.

Online Access is Available for Military and Overseas Voters
In September 2010, Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced that Georgia was ready to meet all the requirements of the federal Military and Overseas Voters Empowerment (MOVE) Act, making the voting process for military and overseas citizens faster, more efficient, and more reliable. Georgia's military and overseas voters may now access an absentee ballot online 45 days before Election Day. For more information, visit the Military/Overseas Voters page.
