Georgia law, O.C.G.A. § 21-2-417, requires all voters to present a photo identification prior to casting their ballot. Voters must bring one of the following six forms of identification: a Georgia driver’s license, even if expired; a valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including one issued by the Department of Driver Services or your county registrar’s office; a valid U.S. passport; a 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 estate; a valid U.S. military photo ID; or valid tribal photo ID.

If you do not have one of these acceptable forms of ID, a Georgia Voter Identification Card is available free of charge at the Department of Driver Services or your local Registrar’s Office. You are not required to include any identification when voting absentee by mail. For more information contact the Seminole County Board of Registrars or Election Superintendent, at 229-524-5256.
