Absentee voting is an easy and convenient way to vote in an election. Any eligible voter may request and vote an absentee ballot without specifying a reason for their absence from the polling place on Election Day. If you will be away from Henry County on Election Day or are unable to go to the polls, or simply want to cast your ballot early, you may vote an absentee ballot by mail or in-person.

Absentee voting begins 21 days before a county, state, or federal election and 21 days before a municipal election. The voting schedule will vary for special elections.

This website will be updated before each election to keep you informed of the voting times and locations.

Applications for by-mail absentee ballots must be made in writing. You may click here to download an absentee ballot application or you may write a letter to apply for an absentee ballot. The letter must contain sufficient information for proper identification of the voter including:

  • Your name
  • Your birth date
  • The address at which you are registered to vote
  • The election(s) for which you are requesting ballots
  • The address to which the ballots should be mailed
  • The reason for requesting the ballot, if applicable

Special Provisions

65+ Voters or Disabled Voters
Georgia law does not require a reason to vote an absentee ballot, however, the law does extend special privileges to voters who provide certain reasons. These reasons benefit voters who use them when they apply for absentee ballots and make absentee voting even more convenient.

Voters who indicate the reason of 65+ or Disabled on the absentee request are eligible to submit one annual absentee ballot application that will be used for all elections in the calendar year. These voters must indicate the desire to receive all ballots when submitting the application, otherwise a separate application must be submitted for each election. Except, a separate application for an absentee ballot is always required for the presidential preference primary and special elections.

Military and Overseas Voters
The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) requires states to allow certain groups of citizens to register and vote absentee in elections for Federal offices. U.S. citizens may vote in the state where they last resided immediately prior to departing the United States, even though many years have passed and the intent to return to that state may not be certain.

Each uniformed and overseas voter who submits an absentee ballot request will receive an absentee ballot through the next two regularly scheduled general elections for federal office.

The Federal Post Card Application(FPCA) is a form provided by federal law to permit members of the U.S. armed forces and merchant marines, their dependents, and U.S. citizens abroad to register to vote and request their absentee ballot by mail. For more information about military and overseas voting, visit http://sos.ga.gov/index.php/elections/military_and_overseas_voting2 and the Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sos.ga.gov/elections/.

Voter Registration Rules
 
 
  • Online voter registration is now available as well as a mobile application that enables voter registration and will have all the capabilities of State of Georgia “My Voter Page”.
    (Apple iTunes / Google Play)
  • You can also view and print the Voter Registration Form online. Once you print the form, fill it out and either mail it or bring it in person to the Registrar’s office at 40 Atlanta Street in McDonough. It is important that your voter registration form be filled out completely and be postmarked or hand-delivered to your county elections office on or before the registration deadline for the election. The voter registration form must have an original signature.
  • Paper forms can be picked up at your public library, City Hall, Tag Office, Registrar’s Office, or when you get your driver’s license.

If you submit your application by mail and you are registering for the first-time in this county, please include a copy of a personal identification document, such as your Georgia driver’s license; current utility bill; current bank statement; current government check; current paycheck; or any other government issued document that shows your name and address.

You are required to provide your driver’s license number on the application. If you do not have a driver’s license, you must enter the last four digits of your Social Security Number.

You will need to submit a new voter registration application if you change your name or permanent residential address (inside or outside the county). When completing the application, please include your prior address or name on the bottom portion of the form. This information will help eliminate duplications on the voters list.

It is important to check your registration status if you have not voted within the last 5 years. Registration status can be checked at the Secretary of State’s poll locator. You may also contact our office at 770-288-6448, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
