Is early voting available in the state of Georgia?

Yes.  Any registered voter may vote by in-person absentee ballot in the state of Georgia. First, any registered voter may vote an absentee ballot in person at their local county board of registrar’s office on Monday through Friday of the week just prior to the election, without having to meet any special eligibility requirements. Next, you can vote by absentee ballot if you will be outside of your precinct on Election Day during voting hours, if you are seventy-five (75) years of age or older, if you have a physical disability that does not permit you to vote in person, or if you are the primary caregiver for a disabled person such that you are unable to vote in person. You also can vote by absentee ballot if you are an election official, if you cannot vote because you are observing a religious holiday, or if you must remain on duty in your precinct for the health, safety, and/or protection of the public. In addition to voting by absentee ballot in person, any registered voter can vote by mail-in absentee ballot without giving a reason for doing so.
