Your Guide to Voting on Election Day in Georgia

Your Guide to Voting on Election Day in Georgia

Although Georgia allows voters to early vote at any location within their county, to vote on Election Day you must report to your assigned polling place. You can find that information on your My Voter PageClick here to see where to find the info once you’ve logged into the system.

You will also need to bring your ID with you. Any of the following will work:

  • A Georgia Driver’s License, even if expired
  • Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free ID Card issued by your county registrar’s office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
  • 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
  • A student ID with photo from a public (but not private!) college, university, or technical college.

You can bring printed information with you to help you vote, but you cannot use a cell phone or tablet or internet-enabled device while voting. You can view a sample ballot on your My Voter Page. Check out our candidate guide here.

FAQ

Check out the Democratic Party of Georgia’s FAQ here.

The poll worker tells me I’m at the wrong location. What should I do?

It depends. Do you believe you are at the wrong location? Where does MVP say your election day polling place is? Are you in the right county? (You need to be in the right county for your vote to count). Generally speaking, if it is later in the day it’s best to stay where you are and ask for a provisional ballot. If it’s early in the day and you have time, consider going to the correct location. Call the voter protection hotline for more assistance (888-730-5816).

The poll worker tells me I’m not registered. What should I do?

If you know you registered before the registration in the county in which you are trying to vote, ask the poll worker to look you up on the supplemental voter roles.  If the poll worker still cannot find, insist on voting a provisional ballot. Call the voter protection hotline for more assistance (888-730-5816).

Should I vote a provisional ballot?

On election day, if you are told you are not eligible to vote, try and work out the issue with the poll worker. However, if you can’t work it out, insist on voting a provisional ballot.  The poll worker must allow you to vote a provisional ballot if you ask to.  Report the incident to the voter protection hotline, 888-730-5816, as soon as possible. You will need to “cure” your ballot, and someone at the hotline will help you with that.

I’m elderly or have a physical disability. Are there any accommodations for me at the polls?

If you are 65 or older, or have a physical disability, you are entitled to go to the front of the line if there is one between the hours of 9:30 am and 4:30 pm.  Ask a poll worker.

Every polling location must have at least one location to vote while seated, such as in a wheelchair.  In addition, voters with disabilities should have the option of using a machine that provides different ways to cast ballots when you are visually impaired or blind that permit privacy, such as through an audio ballot where the voter can hear candidate names and questions through headphones.

You are also entitled to receive assistance from another person.  You can bring or ask anyone to help you except for the following categories of people: an employer, a labor union official, a candidate on the ballot, or the family member of a candidate on the ballot.

I have difficulty reading.  Can someone help me vote? 

Yes. You can bring or ask anyone to help you except for the following categories of people: an employer, a labor union official, a candidate on the ballot, or the family member of a candidate on the ballot. 

English is not my first language. Can someone help me when I vote?

Yes. A voter can bring an interpreter of his choice to assist in the polling booth. The only people who cannot serve as an interpreter are an employer, a labor union official, a candidate on the ballot, or the family member of a candidate on the ballot.

Can I still vote in person if I applied for an absentee ballot?

Yes, you can.  So long as you have not already voted your absentee ballot, you can choose to vote in person.  If you have your absentee ballot in your possession, take it with you to the polls and give it to the poll worker. The poll worker will dispose of your old ballot and let you vote at the polling place.  If you do not have your absentee ballot in your possession (for example, you have not received it yet, or you’ve misplaced it), that’s okay too. Simply tell the poll worker you applied for one, but that you’d like to vote in person instead. The poll worker will ask you to sign a form where you swear you haven’t voted, and then you’ll be permitted to vote in person.

Guidance for 2020 Ballot Amendments and Referendums

Guidance for 2020 Ballot Amendments and Referendums

Proposed Constitutional Amendments

  1. Authorizes dedication of fees and taxes to their intended purposes by general state law.
    House Resolution 164
    Act No 597
    “Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to authorize the General Assembly to dedicate revenues derived from fees or taxes to the public purpose for which such fees or taxes were intended?”

Fulton County Democratic Party Committee recommends: Yes.

From the Democratic Party of Georgia: This question asks if you want to give the Georgia legislature authority to use tax revenue to just go to the public purpose for which the money was intended, instead of an all-purpose fund. Right now, the government can use money dedicated to one purpose, like cleaning up tire dumps and blight, and put it towards broader use. Environmental advocates support this bill because since 1990, while Georgia has raised millions of dollars to clean up specific waste, roughly 40% of those dollars have gone to other purposes. Critics of the amendment say it would remove flexibility for how the government can use money.
However, there are conditions for the amendment — dedicated funding could not exceed 1% of the total state revenues from the previous year, and in an emergency, the governor and General Assembly would have the ability to temporarily suspend dedicated funds.

2. Waives state and local sovereign immunity for violation of state laws, state and federal constitutions.
House Resolution 1023
Act No 596
“Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to waive sovereign immunity and allow the people of Georgia to petition the superior court for relief from governmental acts done outside the scope of lawful authority or which violate the laws of this state, the Constitution of Georgia, or the Constitution of the United States?”

FCPDC recommends: Yes.

From the DPG: This question asks whether Georgians should have the right to sue local and state governments as well as elected officials and public employees in their official capacities to challenge laws that may be unconstitutional. A 2017 ruling by the Georgia Supreme Court largely eliminated the ability of Georgians to challenge the constitutionality of laws without the government’s permission. A bill seeking to restore this ability to Georgians was vetoed by Governor Deal and Governor Kemp, who cited concerns regarding lawsuits from people in mental health facilities and lawsuits involving breach of contract against government employees and officials.


Statewide Referendum

A. Establishes a tax exemption for certain real property owned by charities.
House Bill 344
Act No 149

“Shall the Act be approved which provides an exemption from ad valorem taxes for all real property owned by a purely public charity, if such charity is exempt from taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the federal Internal Revenue Code and such real property is held exclusively for the purpose of building or repairing single-family homes to be financed by such charity to individuals using loans that shall not bear interest?”

FCPDC recommends: Yes

From the DPG: This question asks if 501(c)(3) organizations should be exempt from property taxes on property that is in their inventory that is intended for building or repairing single family homes. For example, if this were to pass, Habitat for Humanity Georgia would be exempt from property tax on the vacant lots they own for future building purposes.
