Where do I vote? Each voter must vote at the polling place designated for the precinct in which the voter lives. If you are in doubt as to the location of your polling place, contact the voter registration office.  Poll site maps are available at www.sos.state.ga.us 

When can I vote on election day? Go to your polling place between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on the day of the election.

Do I have to show identification when voting?  You will be required to present identification at your polling place prior to casting your ballot. There are 14 acceptable types including: driver's license, government identification, passport, employee identification, certified birth certificate, certified naturalization document, and court certified copies showing adoption, name change, etc.

The precinct card sent to you to acknowledge your voter registration is not acceptable identification. If you are unable to produce any of the required ID types, you will be provided with an oath to complete in place of identification, and you will then be allowed to vote.
