Know your polling location

Before you vote double check your polling location through GeorgiaCAN’s Civic Center. Remember polls are open from 7 am to 7 pm. If you’re in line when the polls close stay in line. Make sure to bring your photo I.D.

Make a plan to vote

Think about when you’re going to vote! Ask yourself these important questions:

Are you going before work? During lunch? After work? How are you going to get there? Are you driving? Taking public transit?  Maybe walking or biking? Are you bring a friend?

A plan ensures you will actually vote.

For example, here’s my plan: 

I’m voting on Election Day. I’m going at 7 am before work. I’m riding with my roommate to our polling location near Atlantic Station. I know the candidate I’m voting for. I’m bringing my photo I.D. which is required by state law. 

Now you’re ready to vote!

After you vote here are a couple of things to do:

  • Make sure to share this blog with your friends. Special elections, such as this one, usually have small turnouts 
  • Check out who won. You can keep track of the results starting at 7pm here.
  • Stay engaged. Sign up to join GeorgiaCAN’s Alerts.
  • Mark your calendar for a runoff.

We hope these tips help you prepare for election day! If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to
