Voter ID Requirements
Georgia law requires photo identification when voting, either in person or absentee. It’s the way your county ensures it’s you casting your ballot and not someone who isn’t eligible to vote.
Bring one of these seven forms of identification to vote in person:
A Georgia driver's license, even if expired
Any valid state or federal government-issued photo ID, including a free ID card issued by your county registrar's office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services
Student ID from a Georgia public College or University
Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state
Valid U.S. passport ID
Valid U.S. military photo ID containing a photograph of the voter
Valid tribal photo ID containing a photograph of the voter

You may also find Election protection staff or volunteers outside of your polling place in some locations. Be sure they have the official Election Protection clothing and/or badges before taking their advice.
Provisional ballots are a form of paper ballot that can be used to determine a voter’s eligibility.
You may use a provisional ballot if:
Your name cannot be found on the voter registration list
You are registered at another precinct or county
You do not have acceptable identification
Your polling site is open late because of a court order
You requested an absentee ballot and it cannot be determined if that ballot has been accepted
If a poll worker cannot determine your eligibility, you may be offered a provisional ballot or you may request one. Complete the provisional ballot and follow-up with your county within 3 days after the election to confirm your eligibility to vote on Election Day, or your vote will be rejected.
Voters may be provided a provisional ballot if their polling place is open after 7 PM by court order. Voters may also receive a provisional ballot if the machines are not working. If either of these events happen, voters do not have to follow-up with their county. Votes will count without further action from the voter.
Getting Help: Using a Translator or Other Assistance
Under Georgia law, any voter is able to bring an assist or to the polls with them, if they are unable to use the voting machine, have a disability which may require help, or are in need of translation assistance.
Poll workers cannot turn away your assister. However, your assister may not be your employer or a representative of your union.
Your assister/translator will need to sign an affidavit provided by the county. Your assister is not allowed to affect your vote.
