Georgia law (O.C.G.A § 21-2-417) requires Georgia residents to show photo identification when voting
in person. Acceptable forms of I.D. include:
Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a FREE Voter ID Card issued by the Candler 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 one of these forms of ID, you can receive a FREE Georgia Voter ID card by contacting the Candler County Registrar’s office.
On Election Day, you must vote at your designated polling place. Your assigned polling place is shown on your voter registration card. Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. If you are in line at 7 p.m., 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.
