Election time is upon us and you have 3 ways you can vote: mail-in Absentee Ballot, in-person Early Voting, Election Day at your local voting precinct! Tim believes in creating an Open-Door Democracy, so here is detailed information on how you can cast your vote!

Election Day (May 22)

Where do I vote?

Polls will be open from 7am till 7pm on May 22, Election Day. You must vote at your assigned Voting Precinct. The Voting Precincts for District 5 are:

Be aware, due to Oglethorpe Elementary being under construction, voters who would normally vote there (5A) will instead vote at Whitehead Road Elementary

If you are unsure of your precinct, look at your voter registration card, use the My Voter Page on the Georgia Secretary of State’s website to determine your polling location (official records must come from the Board of Elections, so use this only as a guide and read the disclaimer), or contact the Board of Elections at 706-613-3150.

Absentee Ballot (mail-in)

If you need or wish, you can request a mail-in Absentee Ballot. No reason is required when requesting an absentee ballot. If you are physically disabled or living temporarily outside your county of residence, a close relative may apply for an absentee ballot for you.
If voting by absentee ballot, ballots must be received by the Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections office by election day in order to be counted. No absentee ballots are issued on the day before or the day of an election. May 18 is the last day that Absentee Ballots will be sent out.
