Absentee ballot drop boxes must be located on government property and monitored by video cameras for security. They also must be securely fastened and built with a slot that prevents ballot tampering, damage or removal.
County election employees are required to empty drop boxes at least once every three days in the weeks leading up to the election, and daily in the eight days before Election Day.
Thirty-six drop box locations are available in Fulton County, 35 in DeKalb County, 23 in Gwinnett County, and 16 in Cobb County.
Drop boxes had been set up in 98 of Georgia’s 159 counties as of mid-July. A list of their locations can be found by clicking here. Counties are continuing to add drop boxes.
