When and where to cast your ballot 

To find your Nov. 4 polling place, visit the Georgia Secretary of State poll locator site. If you recently signed up to vote or registered after Oct. 1, your name may not immediately appear in the database. Three weeks after registering, you should receive a card in the mail giving you the information.

On Election Day, polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

In Georgia, you must show photo identification to vote. Acceptable forms of ID include a valid Georgia driver's license, government employee ID, U.S. passport, or military or tribal photo ID. An expired driver's license is acceptable. A free Georgia Voter ID can be obtained from your county registrar office or Department of Driver Services location. For more information, visit www.gaphotoid.com.
