How do I fill out the Absentee Ballot by Mail?
  1. Select voting choices on the Absentee Ballot. Use a blue or black pen to completely fill in the oval next to your choice. DO NOT USE check marks, circles, or Xs.
  2. Fold the ballot and place it inside the “Official Absentee Ballot” privacy envelope or paper privacy sleeve.
  3. Place the privacy envelope or sleeve with the ballot inside into the outer return envelope, complete the information on the back of the outer return envelope, and sign your name in the appropriate spot. 
  4. Return it to the Athens-Clarke County Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on election day, either by mail, or by using the official secure drop box during early voting hours located at the Elections Office at 155 East Washington Street, Athens, GA 30601.
