I’m working in Congress to ensure that all of our voices are heard. To do this, we need to protect access to the ballot box, and ensure everyone has reliable information on where to vote, how to vote, and whether or not they’re eligible to vote.
Here are some frequently asked questions on voting in Georgia:
How do I know if I’m registered to vote?
All Georgia voters can check the status of their registration — or register to vote again following a cancellation — by visiting the Georgia My Voter page here: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/
Who’s being removed from voter rolls? Will this affect me?
As of August 2021, over 185,000 notices have been mailed to Georgians in danger of losing their voter registration. A large portion of this group has likely moved, such as students who registered to vote while attending colleges in Georgia, but other removals are based on inactivity. Under the state’s “use it or lose it” law, voters who haven’t participated in elections or had contact with elections offices for 5+ years will be removed from voter rolls.
If you receive a notice and want to maintain your active status, you will have 30 days to respond according to the postcard’s instructions before being characterized as “inactive.” If the 30 day deadline passes, voters classified as “inactive” will still be able to vote, and doing so within the next two years will return your voting status to “active.” Those who don’t meet either of those deadlines will then be fully removed from the rolls.
My polling place changed, where do I find my new one?
Georgians can vote early at any polling place within their county. On Election Day itself, however, you’ll need to visit your specific precinct. To find your county’s polling places, and your specific precinct, visit https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/
