It’s easy to request a vote by mail ballot. A request for a vote by mail ballot is election specific. The application is only valid for one election, unless the voter is disabled or of advanced age. If a voter is unable to vote in person because of physical disability or is 75 years of age or older, they can mark the designated box on the absentee ballot application in order to receive a ballot for all elections for that year except in the case of a Presidential Preference Primary or any Special Election. In those cases, a separate and distinct application must be made for each election.
A new application must be submitted each year. Georgia does not have a permanent absentee voter status. Georgia Election Law O.C.G.A. 21-2-381(G)
PR - Your name could not be found on the list of voters where you went to vote. This usually happens because you did not register by the voter registration deadline or you moved and did not update your address by the voter registration deadline. OP - You go to the wrong polling place to vote. Between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm, if you are at the wrong Carroll County polling place you are required to go to your assigned polling place. After 6:00 pm if you are at the wrong Carroll County polling place you will be offered a provisional ballot. If you vote at the wrong Carroll County polling place your ballot will only be partially counted for the races in which you are eligible to vote. PI - You do not have one of the acceptable forms of Photo ID. For your provisional ballot to count, provide ID as directed on your Provisional Ballot Pin Code Receipt. Acceptable forms of ID are provided to you at the time you cast a provisional ballot. EH - A court ordered polling place to stay open late, and you voted during this time. When a court issues an order like this, all voters who vote during extended hours must vote a provisional ballot. As long as the court order is upheld, your provisional ballot will count. CH - Your right to vote was challenged by another elector at the polling place. You will be provided instructions by a poll worker to resolve the challenge. Other reasons for voting provisional ballots: * Official records show the voter received an absentee ballot for this election or voted in person in this election; however, if the voter believes this is an error and poll officials can't reach the Elections Office for immediate resolution, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot. * Voter is at the correct precinct however, disputes district assignment and poll officials can't reach the Elections Office for immediate resolution. You will be issued a provisional ballot for the district you believe you should be assigned to. The Elections Office shall examine the information contained on such documents provided by the provisional voter and make a good faith effort to determine whether the person casting the provisional ballot was entitled to vote in the primary, election, or district.
