The Voting Rights Act of 1965 protects every American against racial discrimination in voting. This law also protects the voting rights of many people who have limited English skills. Contact the United States Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Voting Section if you feel your voting rights under federal law have been violated.

Georgia requires ID in order to vote. ID cards for voting purposes are available at no cost from Georgia Department of Driver Services (call  the Georgia Voter Hotline toll-free 1-877-725-9797 for the same information as on the website). This type of free ID is also issued by your county registrar - in Fulton, see the Fulton County Department of Registration. You must be registered to vote to get the free ID card.  

MyVoter Page (State of Georgia) to verify that you are registered to vote, find your current polling place, request an absentee ballot, and print a copy of your voting precinct card.

Use Fulton County's Voting Districts Map Viewer to find your polling place and to identify your district numbers by typing in your street address in the search box at top.

Georgia employers are required under OCGA § 21-2-404 to allow employees two hours off in order to vote if arranged in advance. However, if a voter goes to work after 9 a.m. or leaves work before 5 p.m., the employer may not have to grant the two hours off. The hours are at your employer’s discretion so please make sure you speak to your employer in advance.
