TIPS FOR VOTING ABSENTEE
- Absentee and mail in voting are the same thing.
- Request your absentee ballot immediately if you want to vote by mail.
- Sign your ballot like you signed your voter registration card.
TIPS FOR IN-PERSON VOTING
- Bring a photo ID.
- Wear a mask.
If I requested an absentee ballot but have changed my mind and want to vote in-person, what do I do?
Take your BLANK absentee ballot with you to your polling place and give it to the poll worker. Remember: 1 voter = 1 ballot. As soon as you write on your absentee ballot, it counts as voting your ballot.
Is voting absentee a legitimate way to vote?
YES. There is statistically insignificant evidence of voter fraud when voting by mail.
Resource: Ellen Weintraub, Commissioner for the Federal Election Commission, posted a Twitter series with extensive links documenting the facts about voting by mail. (https://www.fec.gov/resources/cms-content/documents/2020-05-27-ELW-Facts-About-Voting-by-Mail.pdf).
Should I mail back my absentee ballot or drop it in a drop box?
Both are good options. If you can drop it in a drop box, it is the best way to ensure your ballot gets to the polls, but mailing it back is perfectly fine. Mail your completed ballot in ASAP, though.

Become a Poll Worker:
In the vast majority of the country, states and counties report having a very difficult time recruiting poll workers, especially Dekalb County. Upon completing your voter registration, there will be an option to receive information about becoming a poll worker from your state or county. You may also choose to sign up through Secure The Vote GA’s website. (In Dekalb and Fulton county you will be paid!)
