  • Be a legal resident of the county
  • Be at least 17 1/2 years of age to register and 18 years of age to vote
  • Not be serving a sentence for conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude

Georgia citizens have access to several convenient methods of registering to vote;
  • Register to Vote Online
  • Download, complete and mail a voter registration application.
  • You can go to your local county elections and registration office, public library, public assistance office, recruitment office, schools and other government offices for a mail-in form.
  • Registration is offered when you renew or apply for your driver's license at the Department of Motor Vehicle Safety driver's license posts. Your temporary driver's license will indicate your response to whether or not you wish to apply to register to vote.  If your response indicates "Yes"  your voter registration application will be sent electronically to the appropriate county elections office for processing.  To check the status of your application or to print a copy of your precinct card visit www.sos.ga.gov.  If your response indicates "No"  you will not be registered to vote.  If you are already registered to vote answering "No" does not cancel your existing voter registration, it does however prevents your existing voter registration record from being updated with your new information like a change in residence or a name change.
Change of Residence

Voters are required to notify the board of elections and registration of their county of residence whenever they move.  This can be done by writing to the board of elections and registration or by submitting a new voter registration application. The deadline for any changes is 30 days prior to an election.
