Polls Open in Georgia

Polls opened at 7 a.m. across Georgia on Election Day. You can vote until 7 p.m.

Here are three things to remember before heading to the polls: your photo I.D., what you're allowed to wear, and your voting precinct.

  1. Georgia has a strict photo I.D. law, which means you must present proper I.D. to a poll worker. That can be a driver's license, voter ID card, or passport. 
  2. There are also clothing restrictions. Don't wear anything that campaigns. That means no campaign buttons, stickers, or t-shirts.
  3. On election day, make sure to vote at your polling precinct. To find that, visit My Voter Page. The site is run by the Secretary of State and will show you polling locations, sample ballots, and voting times.

If you do show up without proper identification, you can still vote using a provisional ballot. That means you have three days to show your ID card at your county's board of elections office for your ballot to count.

And, of course, to vote you must be a U.S. citizen, a Georgia resident, and at least 18 years old.
