Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Georgia has moved the presidential primary from March 24th to May 19th. Below are instructions for those who have yet to vote and those who have already voted.
What do I do if I have not yet voted in the presidential primary?
Starting Monday, March 23, voters can request mail-in absentee ballots for the May 19, 2020 election. We urge voters who wish to vote by mail to request a mail-in absentee ballot as soon as possible after March 23. You should receive your mail-in ballot in about three business days.
To request a mail-in absentee ballot, fill out an absentee ballot form and send it by email (as an attachment), mail, fax or deliver in-person to the local County Board of Registrar’s Office. The absentee ballot form is found here.

If you do not have easy access to a printer, you may also write the following on a piece of paper, sign it, scan it (or take a photo of it), and send it as an attachment by email to the local County Board of Registrars.
My name is [name as registered] and I request an absentee ballot for the May 19, 2020 election. My voter registration address is [address as registered]. For purposes of the primary election, I request a [Republican, Democratic, or Non Partisan] ballot. For identification purposes, my birth date is [month, day, year of birth].
[SIGNATURE. If voter is disabled or illiterate, the voter should mark an “X”, and the person filling out the form must sign it as a witness.]
What do I do if I have already voted in the presidential primary?
If you have already cast a ballot (in-person or mail-in absentee) for the Presidential Primary, you can still request an mail-in absentee ballot for the May 19, 2020 election, which includes races other than the Presidential Primary. Any votes already cast for the Presidential Primary will be counted, but such votes cannot be changed.
If you have any questions or encounter problems with obtaining a mail-in absentee ballot please contact the ACLU of Georgia.
