Any voter registered in Georgia can vote early.
Each of Georgia’s 159 counties have at least one early voting location open — often, it’s the main elections office. Some, such as Fulton County, have several sites available. Be aware, however, that your regular neighborhood polling place will likely not be open; often, local municipalities only open select sites during the state’s 21-day early voting period.
Use the Secretary of State Office's online "my voter page" website (www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do) to find a sample ballot or specific early voting location.
You can also call your local elections office to find early voting locations or look for the "advance voting info" link under the elections tab of the Secretary of State Office's website (www.sos.ga.gov).

Don’t forget to bring photo identification, which can include a Georgia driver’s license, even if it’s expired; a state-issued voter identification card; a valid U.S. passport; or a valid U.S. military photo ID.
No "ballot selfies" are allowed at the polls, so wait to snap a photo until you're outside. It is illegal in Georgia to take pictures of a ballot or voting equipment, but the Secretary of State Office has said it has seen voters in previous elections post "ballot selfies" on social media — something that could get you in trouble with the law.
As long as you've registered to vote by Oct. 11, there aren't many reasons you shouldn't be allowed to cast a ballot. (Erica A. Hernandez/AJC)
