How do I register to vote?

To register to vote in the state of Georgia, you must be a citizen of the United States, a legal resident of Georgia and of the county in which you wish to vote and at least 17 1/2 years of age. If you are not registered to vote, register here.

Voter registration information

Voter registration is a county function. Georgia counties issue precinct cards after reviewing and processing applications. The deadline to register for the July 31 primary is July 2. The last day to register to vote in the November general election is October 8. For more information, call the Baldwin County Registrar's office at (478) 445-4526.

Georgia citizens have access to several convenient methods of registering to vote:

  • Download, complete, and mail a voter registration application.
  • Contact your local county board of registrars' office or election office, public library, public assistance office, recruitment office, schools and other government offices for a mail-in registration form.
  • Registration is offered when you renew or apply for your driver's license at Department of Motor Vehicle Safety drivers license posts.
  • College students can obtain Georgia voter registration forms, or the necessary forms to register in any state in the U.S., from their school registrar's office or from the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
