General Election is Tuesday, November 8, 2022

Georgia voters will be asked in November's General Election to choose candidates for Federal, state, and local representation. All voters are encouraged to take the time to research candidates running for office and ask them questions about their policy strategies and priorities. To participate in the November 8 General election, and a subsequent runoff election if necessary, you must have been registered to vote by October 11, 2022.


Learn About the Candidates' Priorities

Many different media outlets and nonprofit groups equip voters with tools and background to assist in making informed choices by providing information on political candidates, including general qualifications and an assessment of each candidate’s understanding of and commitment to key issues facing the community at large. Search online for information from trusted sources.

Across the state, many voters have been assigned to new congressional and local districts after Georgia's General Assembly approved redistricting. You can confirm your polling place and which races/referenda will be on your ballot by visiting the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at



Time to Vote

Many local employers are offering options for the first time for workers to formally take time off to vote. Across the state, some 60 employers signed on with Time to Vote, a nonpartisan cause that promotes early voting access and paid time off to vote or volunteer with polling.

The requirements have changed recently about how to apply for and receive permission to vote absentee. Absentee ballot applications opened on August 22. The last day to submit an absentee ballot for the General Election was October 28, 2022.
