Any voter registered in Georgia can vote early.
Local elections offices post early voting locations on their websites. As a bonus, several metro Atlanta counties, including Cobb, Fulton and Gwinnett, also post expected wait times.

Be aware 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, which ends today.
You can log onto 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).
Dos and don’ts for voting in Georgia
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 until you’re outside to snap a photo. 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.
Information about local elections and your “My Voter Page” can also be found on the free “GA SOS” app for your smartphone via iTunes or Google Play for Android.
