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 March 24, 2020 Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) has been postponed to join the May 19, 2020 General Primary Election, Nonpartisan General Election, and Special Election.
All Advance In-Person (Early) voting for the Presidential Preference Primary ended on Saturday March 14, 2020. There will be no more in-person voting until in-person voting begins in April for the May 19, 2020 election.
All absentee ballots that are received by March 24th will be accepted as normal. All absentee ballot applications for the Presidential Preference Primary should continue to be processed as normal, and any provisional voters will have until the normal provisional deadline (March 27) to remedy any deficiency. Other provisional votes will be processed as normal.
The March 24 PPP was being held to determine which presidential candidate you preferred, which in turn allocates committed delegates to the Democratic and Republican national nominating conventions. Since this race will be postponed until May 19th due to the declared public health emergency caused by COVID-19, voters are still encouraged to request an absentee ballot for the PPP, especially if you wanted to vote in one political party’s contest for the PPP and switch parties for the General Primary on May 19.
A combined ballot will be issued in May if you have not already voted in the PPP. For the combined ballot, voters must decide which party ballot they want for the combined contests.

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.
