Know Before You Go:

What to bring with you for in-person voting:

  • A valid ID, such as a driver’s license, passport, or voter identification card.
  • Chair, water, and snacks if the location has a long wait line.
  • Your absentee ballot if you are wanting to vote in-person instead. If you do not have your absentee ballot, you will need to sign an affidavit stating that you are instead casting your ballot in-person.
  • If you are a voter with a physical disability or are 75 years of age and older, you do not need to wait in line. Just walk to the entrance and a poll worker will assist you in casting your ballot.

Provisional and Rejected Ballots

If there is a problem with your absentee application, you may be issued a provisional ballot.  In order to ensure that your provisional ballot is accepted, you can return this Application Cure Affidavit. You will also receive this affidavit in the mail. You do not need to return this form if you do not have a provisional ballot.

If there is a problem with your ballot when you return it to us, it may temporarily be marked “Rejected.” It is still possible to get your rejected ballot accepted, but you will need to return this Ballot Cure Affidavit. You will also receive this affidavit in the mail. You do not need to return this form if you do not have a rejected ballot.

Both forms are due by the close of business on the Friday following the election. If we have not received them by then, your ballot will not be counted.

Return your affidavit by:

EMAIL:   absenteeballot@dekalbcountyga.gov
FAX:(404) 298-4038
MAIL:Voter Registration & Elections
