What To Know Before Election Day

December 5th, 2022

We encourage all voters to check their My Voter Page to see their registration, sample ballot, and polling place before they go to vote. It’s good practice to confirm your polling place even if you think you already know it, because it’s possible there can be changes from election to election.  

“We’re seeing very high levels of voter turnout and I want every voter in Georgia to have the best experience possible,” Said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “I urge everyone to check My Voter Page and verify their polling place.”

Voters have to bring a state-issued photo ID. Usually that’s a driver’s license, but any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free ID card issued by a county registrar's office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS).

They can also use:
• Georgia driver's license, even if it’s expired or a current ID issued by another state
• valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the US Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state
• valid US passport ID
• valid US military photo ID containing a photograph of the voter
• student photo ID card issued by a Georgia public (NOT PRIVATE) college, university, or technical school
• valid tribal photo ID containing a photograph of the voter

We have seen record early voting turnout and planned for high Election Day voter turnout. This year, Georgia achieved the record for midterm absentee-by-mail voting. Any voter worried about long lines at the polls should check their County’s website before going to vote, as many counties publish wait times at their polling locations.
