Party Affiliation

You do not register by political party in the State of Georgia because the state has an open primary. At each Presidential Preference or General Primary Election, you may choose the primary in which you wish to vote by selecting the party before voting. A run-off is simply a continuation of the election. You must vote for the same party in the run-off as you did in the primary unless you voted a non-partisan ballot. In this case you must indicate a party preference for your run-off ballot. If you fail to vote in the General Primary, you are still eligible to vote in either party's Run-off Election and the General Election.

Absentee-by-Mail Voting

Georgia law allows for absentee-by-mail ballots to be requested no earlier than 78 days and no later than 11 days prior to an election. Any applications received outside of this window will be rejected. To request an absentee ballot, complete an absentee ballot application and return it to the elections office by mail, fax, email (as an attachment), or in person. 

Absentee Ballot Application - print a paper copy, fill out, sign, and return.

Absentee Ballot Request Portal - fill out online, print, sign, scan, and return. 

SOS Voting by Mail Fact Sheet

Voted ballots may be mailed, dropped off in person, or deposited in the ballot drop box located on the lower level of the Hall County Government Center. The ballot drop box will only be installed and open during early voting dates and hours per O.C.G.A. 21-2-382 (c)(1)

When an absentee ballot which has been voted shall be returned to and received by the board of registrars, it shall be deemed to have been voted then and there; and no other ballot shall be issued to the same elector. If an elector has requested to vote by absentee ballot and has not received such absentee ballot, has such ballot in his or her possession, has not returned such ballot, or has returned such ballot but the registrars have not received such ballot, such elector may have the absentee ballot canceled and vote in person on the day of the primary, election, or runoff - O.C.G.A. 21-2-388.

Absentee ballots cannot be canceled over the phone. If you wish to cancel your absentee ballot because you spoiled it, lost it, did not receive it, etc., and you wish to be mailed another ballot, please fill out this ABM Cancellation Request and mail, fax, email or personally deliver the form to the Elections Office. 

All voted absentee-by-mail ballots must be received in the Elections Office by 7 PM on Election Day in order to be counted, regardless of their postmark date. 

Important Reminder - "Except in the case of physically disabled electors residing in the county or municipality, no absentee ballot shall be mailed to an address other than the permanent mailing address of the elector as recorded on the elector’s voter registration record or a temporary out-of-county or out-of-municipality address." Section 21-2-381(a)(1)(D). 


Provisional Ballots

If you voted a provisional ballot you may call the Elections Office at 770-531-6945 to inquire about the status of your ballot. You may also email elections@hallcounty.org

Sample Ballots

Sample ballots will be available via "My Voter Page."

Hall County Elections' Tours and Training Initiative is geared toward the public and its interest in election law and processes. It promotes our transparent election services to help our community move forward in confidence.
