What is a provisional ballot?
A provisional ballot is used to record a vote if a voter's eligibility is in question and the voter would otherwise not be permitted to vote at his or her polling place. The content of a provisional ballot is no different from a regular ballot, but it is cast "provisionally" until the voter's eligibility is determined. The elections office has three days following the primary or election to determine the eligibility of all provisional ballots cast. (O.C.G.A. 21-2-419)
