YOU MUST SIGN THE APPLICATION BEFORE YOU RETURN IT

The last day this office may mail an absentee ballot to you is always the Friday before the election. No absentee by-mail ballots can be mailed or voted in person the Monday before the election. The county election office must receive all absentee by-mail ballots before 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted. Absentee by-mail ballots received from military and overseas voters will be accepted up to 3 days after an election, if postmarked by Election Day.

In-person absentee voting begins 21 days before an election. The voting time for special elections will vary. In-person voting ends on the Friday before the election.

Extended times and additional voting locations are also available throughout Henry county for some elections. In-person voting dates, times, locations and deadlines will be made available prior to each election.

In-person absentee voters must fill out and sign an application when they arrive to vote and the voter must provide proper identification.

Special Provisions

65+ Voters or Disabled Voters

Georgia law does not require a reason to vote an absentee by-mail 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 by-mail ballots and make absentee by-mail voting even more convenient.

Voters who indicate the reason of 65+ or Disabled on the absentee by-mail request are eligible to submit one annual absentee by-mail 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 by-mail 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 may have passed and the intent to return to that state may not be certain.

Each uniformed and overseas voter who submits an absentee by-mail 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/.

Where do I vote?

If a person is already registered to vote in Georgia, they can fill in their name, county, and birth date, submit the information, and the Poll Locator will provide their voter registration information, poll location and directions, and which election districts the voter is now in.

The Poll Locator provides a web-based search of data extracted from Georgia's statewide voter registration database. It is not the official record of a person's registration, which is retained by the Voter Registration Office in the county of their residence.

Should you know your voting district, you may also search below.

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, and Registrar’s Office.

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.
