When you register to vote in Georgia, you are automatically registered to vote in city elections if you reside within the city limits; a second application is not required.

Step 1: If you think you are registered but unsure of your status, please visit the Georgia Secretary of State's website. Here you can check your official registration record to determine if you need to either re-register or just make a change to your registration. 
Step 2:

If you are registering to vote for the first time, complete the form (see below) in its entirety, print the form, and enclose one of the approved identifications listed above with the form.

Secretary of State
State of Georgia
P.O. Box 105325
Atlanta, GA  30348-9562

Step 3:

If you need to change your name and/or address, complete the same form used for registration, then print, sign, and mail. Although you are registered to vote, the form is an official government document and therefore, MUST be fully completed. Mail the completed form as noted in Step 2.

Step 4: In approximately 4 to 6 weeks, you should receive a precinct identification card that will list your political districts and polling location. If you are unsure of your polling place, visit the Georgia Secretary of State's website. You will be shown a map of your area and where your polling place is located.

Voter Registration Form
Voter Registration Form (PDF) 

Once you have completed the form, it must be printed and either mailed or hand delivered to the Voter Registrations and Elections Office. By law, applications received via email or fax will be rejected.

Note: Although the above form states DO NOT FOLD OVER, STAPLE, OR TAPE, it only applies to the printed original form. The PDF copy may be sealed as needed for mailing, although we recommend that staples not be used. Staples get caught in the mail processing equipment and often tear the documents, which could delay or prevent you from becoming registered to vote.
