Early voting begins Monday, October 15, 2018 at these locations for Fulton County voters. Also: Early voting for DeKalb voters.  

Make sure your name still shows on the voter rolls by checking MyVoter Page (State of Georgia). You can also find your current polling place, request an absentee ballot, and print a copy of your voting precinct card.

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 picture 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.  

Fulton County residents can register to vote online or at their city hall, the Georgia Department of Driver Services, any Atlanta-Fulton County library branch, one of the three registration and elections offices, or by mail. Elections offices can also issue free Georgia ID for voting purposes. 

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.
