Early Tabulation Notice


Party Affiliation

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 unless you voted a non-partisan ballot. In this case you must indicate a party preference on 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.
