REGISTRATION AND BALLOT REQUEST
If you haven't received your ballot yet, check your Absentee Ballot Status on: www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do (After you submit your information, go to “Click here for Absentee Ballot status” in lower left box)
Ballots for the January 5, 2021 Runoff election are now available (check your spam folder for the notice). You can also go to www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do to see if your ballot is available.
If you haven't received a ballot yet, we strongly recommend overseas voters fill out and mail in a Backup Ballot (the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot, or FWAB).
More information on how to find your ballot and/or fill out a FWAB is available here.
The instructions will indicate how to prepare your ballot for mailing and will provide the mailing address for your election office in Georgia.
RETURNING BALLOT BY COURIER (INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS MAIL SERVICE)
Given the time deadlines and the fact that the Christmas season will further exacerbate the mailing disruptions caused by COVID, we recommend that you use a courier service to return your ballot if possible. And we strongly recommend voters use a courier service for any ballots mailed back in December.
VERIFY YOUR BALLOT WAS ACCEPTED--AND FIX IF NEEDED
After you mail in your ballot, be sure to verify it was accepted. If your ballot is rejected for signature issues, GA will let you fix it but the deadline to do so is Jan 8, 2021.
