Early Voting

Early voting allows voters to cast a ballot before the election without providing an excuse for not voting at your polling place on election day.  The purpose of implementing early voting is to make voting more convenient for voters.  The period to vote early is 22 days prior to the election until 5 days prior to the election. Early voting is conducted at  the DeKalb County Clerk's Office.   Early Voting and Absentee Voting are not the same thing. With early voting, you may vote without an excuse. With absentee voting, you need a reason why you cannot make it to your polling place on election day. Also, you may not be mailed a ballot to vote early. You may only be mailed an absentee ballot.  The ballot is the same whether voting absentee, early or at the polling place on election day.

 

Voting by Absentee Ballot

The following voters must be registered to vote by absentee ballot: Voters who expect to be absent from the county on election day and still maintain a residence within the county; Physically incapacitated voters who will be unable to go to the polling place on election day. Voters, who because of a religious holiday, will not be able to go to the polls on election day and sequestered jurors.

 

Absentee Voting By Mail

A registered voter who meets the above qualifications may request an official "Application for Absentee Ballot". A request for the official application must include the name and home address of the applicant and the address to which the application should be sent.

The official "Application for Absentee Ballot" may be sent to the County Clerk not more than 40 nor less than five days prior to the election. If the official application is filed within that time and is properly completed, ballots will be mailed to the applicant.

 

All ballots, whether used or not, must be returned to the County Clerk's office. In order for ballots to be counted, they must be returned to the County Clerk's office in time to be delivered to the polling place before 7:00 P.M. on the day of the election.

 

Absentee Voting In Person

Registered voters who expect to be absent from the county on election day may vote in person at the office of the County Clerk during normal business hours beginning 40 days prior to the election through the day prior to the election.
