Tuesday, November 8, 2022, is Election Day and your last chance to vote. Grice Connect has compiled information on finding your polling place, voting hours, and ID requirements below. You can also view a sample ballot here.

Remember to make a plan to VOTE on Tuesday!

Follow Grice Connect for local election results. We will begin providing updates as soon as the results begin coming in after the polls close at 7pm.

Voting on Election Day

On Election Day, you must vote at your designated polling place. Polling places are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Election Day. If you are in line at 7:00 PM, you will be allowed to cast your vote.
 
When you get to your polling place, proceed to the check-in desk and fill out a voter’s certificate with your name and address. Next, show your photo ID. A poll worker will then check your photo ID, verify that you are registered and at the correct polling location, issue you a voter access card or ballot, whichever is applicable, and allow you to vote.
 
Voting Machines
Georgia uses a ballot marking device for elections. Municipalities may use other methods of voting in municipal elections. Instructions on how to use voting equipment are posted at each polling location. You may also ask a poll worker to explain the voting method at your polling location.
 
Voter Assistance
Voting must be readily accessible to disabled and elderly voters. If you need special assistance to vote or to access your polling place, contact your county registrar’s office.

Finding Your Precinct

Your assigned polling place is shown on your voter registration card. You can find your polling location on the map below (click on precinct for direction information), by going to http://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov or contact the Bulloch County registrar’s office at (912) 764-6502. Thanks to the Bulloch County GIS office for putting together this interactive map.

You can also enter your address on this website to find your voting location.

On Election Day, you may ONLY vote at your assigned precinct. If you arrive at the incorrect precinct, you will only be able to cast a provisional ballot.

If a voter registered to vote on time but voted in the wrong precinct, certain conditions must be met for their provisional ballot to be counted. In such a situation, only a ballot cast by a voter between 5:00pm and the regular closing time of the polls on election day, with a sworn statement from the voter, will be reviewed. The sworn statement must confirm that the voter is unable to vote at his or her assigned precinct before the polls close and give reason why.

Poll workers are to notify any voter who shows up at the incorrect precinct and give them information on their correct precinct. Provisional ballots meeting review requirements will be sent to the State Election Board.

Voter ID Requirements

Georgia law requires registered voters to show photo identification in order to vote in person.

What IDs are acceptable?

  • Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a FREE Voter ID Card issued by your county registrar’s office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
  • A Georgia Driver’s License, even if expired
  • 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
  • Valid tribal photo ID

If you do not have a photo ID listed above, you can still vote by provisional ballot. You have three days after the election to bring the required photo ID to your county registrar’s office in order for your provisional ballot to be counted.

If you have to vote a provisional ballot because you don’t have one of the forms of Photo ID listed above, you can go to your county voter registration office, get a FREE photo ID and present it within three days after the election and your provisional ballot will be counted.
 
If you simply forget your Photo ID, and time permits, you can retrieve it, return to the polling place, and vote.
