In-Person Voting FAQs

When does early voting begin?

Counties must hold voting Monday through Friday, October 12 through October 30 as well as on Saturday, October 24 (the “mandatory Saturday”) in at least one location in the county. Some counties will have voting on other weekend days during the early vote period, including Sundays. Some counties will have multiple early voting locations. There is no voting the weekend or the Monday prior to Election Day. Find your early voting location, hours, and days here. You can vote at any early voting location in your county.

Can I still register to vote?

Why yes, you can. Until October 5, it’s game on for voter registration. Click here to join the fun or to help a friend (or 100) join as well. You can also update your address if you have moved recently. 

Do I need a valid Georgia Drivers License to vote in person?

No! While Georgia law requires Georgia residents to show photo identification when voting in person (you are not required to provide identification when you vote absentee by mail), it doesn’t have to be a Georgia Driver’s License. You can use any of the following:

  • Any valid state or federal government-issued photo ID, including a free Voter ID Card issued by your county registrar's office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services

  • A Georgia Driver's License or state ID, even if expired

    • Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state

    • Valid U.S. passport ID

    • Valid U.S. military photo ID

    • Valid tribal photo ID

If you do not have one of the six acceptable forms of photo ID above, the State of Georgia offers a free ID Card. An ID card can be issued at any county registrar's office or Department of Driver Services Office free of charge. For more help, contact VoteRiders. To receive a voter identification card, the voter must provide:

  • A photo identity document or approved non-photo identity document that includes full legal name and date of birth

  • Documentation showing the voter's date of birth

  • Evidence that the applicant is a registered voter

  • Documentation showing the applicant's name and residential address
