 Voters and organizations throughout Georgia are invited to participate in the nonpartisan #PostThePeach campaign to engage voters and encourage participation in early voting. Current partners include:

Early voting across Georgia begins on Monday, October 13. Early voting saves time and is more convenient for voters with busy, modern lifestyles. But even more importantly, it allows for time for a voter to correct any unforeseen problem that may occur at the polls.

Georgia voters will have three weeks to vote early, with some weekend voting hours available in all counties. In total, across the state, Georgia voters will have access to 261 early voting locations, a combined total of 28,262 weekday hours and 1,779 weekend hours for early voting, spanning across a minimum of 16 voting days, and as many as 19 voting days.

In addition, voters can cast their ballots by mail and on Election Day. To find your polling location and the early voting hours and locations in your county, log on to the Georgia My Voter Page at http://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/.
