You can vote a provisional ballot anytime, however if you cast a provisional ballot ‘out of your voting precinct’ on Election Day and it is before 5 p.m. your provisional ballot will not be counted. If you cast your provisional ballot ‘out of precinct’ after 5 pm. on Election Day then your provisional ballot will be counted. In this case, only the votes cast for candidates for whom you would have been eligible to vote for in your proper polling location shall be counted.
If you have not voted in a while please contact the Gordon County Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office at 706-629-7781 to see if you are still eligible to vote. You can also visit “My Voter Page” to see if you are registered to vote and to find out what precinct you vote in. Please remember that you must be registered to vote 30 days prior to the election to be eligible to vote. The 30 days also applies to having your name changed or your addressed changed on your voter registration information.
Voters are required to notify the board of elections of their county of residence whenever they move. If you move within the county in which you are registered to vote and did not notify the registrar at least 30 days prior to the election, you may vote in your old polling place for this election. You must complete a change of address card at the polling place.
If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote within 30 days of an election, you may vote in your old precinct for that election and any ensuing runoff only. If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote more than 30 days prior to an election, you have lost your eligibility to vote in elections in the county of your old residence. You must register to vote in your new county of residence, and if you did not register to vote in the new county by the deadline, you cannot vote in that particular election.

A provisional ballot is a paper ballot used by a voter whose eligibility to vote is in question and cannot be determined on Election Day.
On the day following the election, the registrar investigates each and every provisional ballot in an attempt to help prove the voter’s eligibility. If the registrar can find proof that the voter is eligible to vote then the voter’s ballot is counted, if not the voter’s ballot is rejected. As part of the process of voting a provisional ballot, the voter will complete an application to register to vote so even if the registrar is unable to prove the voter’s eligibility, the voter will be able to get registered for future elections.
