Register to Vote in Georgia

Deadlines Qualifications Where By Mail


In general, the deadline to register to vote in any election is the close of business on the fifth Monday preceding the election. For example, for the November 2, 2000 General Election, the deadline is Monday, October 4.
Runoff elections are considered to be an extension of the preceding Primary or General election, so the deadline is the same as that for the Primary or General election. For example, the November 23 Runoff, if needed, is an extension of the November 2 General Election, so the deadline for registration is Monday, October 4.
