Georgia requires voters to show photo identification when they vote in person. Approved forms of identification include a Georgia driver’s license, even if it’s expired; a state-issued voter identification card; a valid U.S. passport; and a valid U.S. military photo ID.
As a voter, you must stick with the party ballot you choose for the main primary (in other words, you can’t cast a Democratic ballot in the main primary and then vote in a Republican runoff). However, if you did not vote in the primary or if you originally picked a nonpartisan ballot, you may still vote in the runoff and pick the party ballot of your choice.
If you see or experience problems, first contact your local elections office. If local officials can't help, the secretary of state's office has an online complaint form via the "elections" tab at www.sos.ga.gov. The office's voter fraud hot line is 877-725-9797.
EARLY VOTING TOTALS
Only about 3 percent of the state’s roughly 5 million active voters cast ballots early for the runoff, leaving observers to predict final turnout on Election Day won’t exceed the single digits or low teens. By contrast, almost 5 percent of voters cast ballots early two months ago during the regular primary, with final Election Day turnout of about 20 percent. The wrap on early voting for this year’s runoff:
Number of ballots cast: 159,152
Number of ballots voted in person: 134,267
Number of mail-in ballots returned: 24,885
Number of mail-in ballots outstanding: 12,717
Number of ballots cast, Republican: 121,678
Number of ballots cast, Democratic: 36,677
