Absentee Ballot Applications for May 2020 Election
In an effort to protect the health and safety of local residents, the Board of Elections & Registration (BoER) is supporting Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in his effort to mail absentee ballot request forms to every Georgia Voter.
This will allow all registered voters to request a mailed ballot for the May 19, 2020 General Primary/Nonpartisan General Election/Special Election and Presidential Preference Primary.

March 24, 2020 Presidential Preference Primary Postponed
The declared public health emergency caused by COVID-19 postponed the March 24, 2020 Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) until the May 19, 2020 Election.
Advance in-person voting for the PPP ended early and all registered voters who did not vote in that election will now be issued a combined ballot for the May election. For the combined ballot, voters must decide which party ballot they want for the contests on the General Primary scheduled for May 19, 2020. Those registered voters who cast ballots in the PPP will only vote on the General Primary Election, Non-Partisan General Election, and Special Election.
New Voting Machines
The State of Georgia will use new voting machines for the 2020 elections. The video below shows how the new voting process and machines will operate. Visit the Secure the Vote Website for more information.
New Polling Places
The Board of Elections & Registration voted to relocate several polling places. These changes have been accepted by the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office and will be in effect for the May 19, 2020, General Primary Election, Nonpartisan General Election, Presidential Preference Primary, and Special Election.
Impacted voters will receive, by mail, an updated precinct card with the new polling place address. All voters are encouraged to visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page (MVP) to view their registration status.
