“When is the election?”

Local Election and State Primary: May 19, 2020
General Election; November 3, 2020

“Am I registered to vote?”

Check here to see if you’ve already registered.

"I'm a Georgia Voter" stickersThe Georgia Secretary of State’s office has been purging the voter rolls of inactive voters. If you registered years ago and have not voted recently, you may want to make sure you are still registered.

If you’re not registered, make sure to register at least a month before election day.

“Can I register to vote online?”

Yes! You can register here.

Residents of Georgia are eligible to register to vote here if they are:

  1. A citizen of the United States
  2. At least 17 ½ years old (you need to be 18 to actually vote)
  3. Not currently serving a sentence for a felony conviction
  4. Not determined mentally incompetent

You will need to register one month before election day.

“What commission district am I in?”

Check these maps to find your commission district. The even-numbered seats on the commission will be up for re-election (Districts 2, 4, 6, 8, 10) in May of 2020.

For your other voting districts, check here.

“Who can I vote for? Can I see a sample ballot?”

I will link to the sample ballot here when it is available. I will also provide a detailed guide complete with voter info for each election! Until that’s ready, you can check to see who’s running here.
