Georgia Voter Identification Requirements
Georgia law (O.C.G.A § 21-2-417) requires Georgia residents to show photo identification when voting in person. This law will be implemented for the September 18, 2007 Special Election and all future elections. Contact your county registrar’s office to find out if there is an election on September 18 in your county. If you have questions or need more information or have difficulty getting a FREE Voter Identification Card, you can contact your county registrar’s office or the Secretary of State, Elections Division.
You are not required to include any identification when you vote absentee by mail.
