Absentee Voting

Georgia law allows residents to vote by absentee ballot.  Absentee ballots are requested by the voter and mailed to them. Fulton County residents choosing to vote by absentee ballot are strongly encouraged to request their absentee ballot as soon as possible to ensure that it arrives back to the Department of Registration and Elections offices by the closing of the polls on Election Day. Voters may request an absentee ballot beginning at 180 days before an election.  Absentee Ballot requests may be requested by fax, by mail, email or by phone.
