It’s easy to request a vote by mail ballot. A request for a vote by mail ballot is election specific. The application is only valid for one election, unless the voter is disabled or of advanced age. If a voter is unable to vote in person because of physical disability or is 75 years of age or older, they can mark the designated box on the absentee ballot application in order to receive a ballot for all elections for that year except in the case of a Presidential Preference Primary or any Special Election. In those cases, a separate and distinct application must be made for each election.
A new application must be submitted each year. Georgia does not have a permanent absentee voter status. Georgia Election Law O.C.G.A. 21-2-381(G)
* You do not have one of the acceptable forms of Photo ID. For your provisional ballot to count, provide ID as directed. Acceptable forms of ID are provided to you at the time you cast a provisional ballot.
* Your right to vote was challenged by another elector at the polling place. You will be provided instructions by a poll worker to resolve the challenge.
* A court ordered polling places to stay open late, and you voted during this time. When a court issues an order like this, all voters who vote during extended hours must vote a provisional ballot. As long as the court order is upheld, your provisional ballot will count.
* Official records show that you received an absentee ballot for this election or voted in person in this election; however, if this is an error and poll officials can't reach the Elections Office you would still be required to vote a provisional ballot.
With an online process, a voter receives immediate feedback. If there is an error, the voter can correct the registration record in real time. Simply put, online voter registration avoids potential problems and speeds up delivery to the correct elections office.
