In response to a recent influx of citizen questions regarding party affiliations and registrations, Hall County Elections provides the following information.
How does one become registered with a political party in Georgia?
You do not register by political party in the State of Georgia. At each Presidential Preference or General Primary Election, you may choose the primary in which you wish to vote by selecting the party on the Voter's Certificate on the General Primary Election Day. Examples are posted at the polls. 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.
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.
Sample ballots are available via your "My Voter Page" with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
Visit My Voter Page to:
- Check your voter registration status. Inactive status does not mean that you are not able to vote. Inactive voters are eligible to vote, and once they do so, their status will be turned to Active.
- Find your polling location.
- View or print your voter registration card (this card is not required for voting; it simply has your polling information, voting districts, etc.)
- View upcoming election dates.
- View your representatives.
- View a sample ballot.
- Register online or update your voter registration.
