This post updated 7:45 p.m. Oct. 2 to report federal court ruling that resets mailed absentee ballot count deadline to Election Day
Monday is the final day Georgians can register to cast a ballot in the Nov. 3 general election, expected to draw more than 5 million Georgians to come out to the polls or vote absentee.
A week after Monday’s voter registration deadline is the start of three weeks of early in-person voting, from Oct. 12 until Oct. 30, the Friday before Election Day. Check with your county for specific poll information.
About 1.4 million Georgians have already received or requested absentee ballots for the election.
You can request an absentee ballot online at ballotrequest.sos.ga.gov.
The U.S. Postal Service suggests people mail their ballots at least seven days before the deadline. Voters can also turn in their completed ballots by 7 p.m. on Election Day at their county election office or at approved drop boxes located across the state.
Many counties are maintaining drop boxes for voters to deposit absentee ballots up until 7 p.m. Nov. 3. Check with your local elections office to confirm your county’s drop box location.
The public can verify their voter registration status, check their absentee ballot status, find their polling location, and get other important voting information at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov.
