Georgia Secretary of State Reminds Voters to Bring Photo ID to Advance Voting



October 29, 2007 By

Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel today reminded voters participating in the November 6 county and municipal elections that advance voting will begin Monday, October 29. Voters will be required to show photo identification when they vote. Advance voting will end Friday, November 2.

Voters in Georgia counties will go to the polls to vote on county and municipal offices and various local issues. Voters will be required to show one of the following six forms of photo ID when voting in-person during advance voting or on Election Day:
  • A Georgia driver's license, even if expired;
  • Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free Voter ID Card issued by your county registrar or Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
  • Valid U.S. passport
  • Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state
  • Valid U.S. military photo ID
  • Valid tribal photo ID.

If a voter does not have one of these forms of photo identification, they can obtain a free Voter ID card at their County Registrars' office or the Georgia Department of Driver's Services.

Citizens can request an absentee ballot through Friday, November 2. All absentee ballots must be received by the County Registrar by 7:00 pm on Election Day. Photo identification is not required when voting by mail.
