When do I need to update my voter registration in the state of Georgia?

If you move within the same county in Georgia, you should update your address with your local county board of registrar’s office in writing, or by completing a new voter registration application. If you move to another Georgia county within thirty (30) days of an election, you can still vote in your old precinct for that election. However, if you move to a different county in the state of Georgia more than thirty (30) days prior to an election, you must complete a new voter registration application in your new county in order to be eligible to vote in that election.
