Important information: The law on absentee ballots has changed. Beginning this year you may only use the official application above to request an absentee ballot. Read the application carefully. You are now required to provide either a Georgia Driver's License or Georgia ID Card number or a copy of another form of ID. If you do not have an acceptable ID, you can get one free of charge from our office or the Department of Driver Services. Click here for more information about Georgia's ID requirements.
