Absentee Voting

Georgia law allows residents to vote by absentee ballot, sometimes known as voting by mail.

REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT
To vote by absentee ballot, click here to download an Absentee Ballot Application, or go to the Secretary of State's website at mvp.sos.ga.gov.

Instead of an absentee ballot application, you may submit a written request that must include:

• the name and date of the election
• the voter’s name
• address as registered
• date of birth
• the voter's party choice (for partisan primary elections only)
• the voter’s signature

Return your written absentee ballot application or letter of request to the Fulton County Absentee Ballot Division via fax, email, mail, or dropbox.

FAX TO:
404-612-3697

EMAIL TO:
To submit an absentee ballot application via email, attach the application as a .pdf or .jpg between 1 MB and 5 MB to elections.voterregistration@fultoncountyga.gov. Only one application may be attached per email.

RETURN YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT

MORE ABOUT ABSENTEE BALLOTS
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.

For additional information, the Secretary of State has prepared an online guide to help voters with absentee voting. Please visit mvp.sos.ga.gov to obtain a copy of the guide.
