Are you in the Military or Overseas at time of voting?
Members of our armed forces and their spouses that are interested in voting may get information about obtaining an absentee ballot HERE.
Any registered voter may apply for and receive an absentee ballot. Any absentee ballot application received from a military or overseas voter is kept on file until the end of the two year election cycle in which it is received. All other registered voters may apply for an absentee ballot at any time after the 181'st day before an election. No absentee ballots are issued after the 4'th day before an election, unless a voter is hospitalized on the day of an election.
You do not have to provide a reason why you are applying for a ballot.
If a registered voter is disabled or is residing temporarily outside of the county, then a relative may apply for an absentee ballot for the voter. A “relative” is defined as the registered voter’s spouse, mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law as long as the “relative” is 18 years of age or older.

You may also request an application in person or call the Voter Registration Office at 706-675-3907 and an application will be mailed to you.
