ATLANTA — It's Election Day in Georgia - again.
As voters wake up and start heading to the polls, it's important to know where your station is and when you can make it.
Here's what you need to know to find your polling station in Georgia and how to update voter information according to the state's website:
When do polls open/close?
Polls across the state open at 7 a.m.
They're set to close at 7 p.m. and anyone who is in line before the 7 p.m. deadline will be allowed to cast a ballot.
Delays could extend the closing time for specific polling locations but require a court order.
Verify voter card information
Double-check that your voter registration is up to date with your current address to ensure you're going to the correct polling station. Unfortunately, if voters have not already registered by this time, they will not be able to vote on Tuesday.
- If that information is correct, find your registration card's polling location.
- If the information on your registration card is incorrect, you'll have to re-register through the online voter registration system or call your registrar's office.
You'll need to show your ID to a poll worker at your polling place. They'll verify voter information to ensure you've come to the right station. As long as voters are in line by 7 p.m. on Dec. 6, they are allowed to cast a ballot.
Register for the future
To register to vote in Georgia for the future, you'll need a form of voter identification, "such as a government-issued driver’s license or identification card," the state says online. And if you've never registered to vote, ensure you're eligible. To register to vote in Georgia, you must:
- Be a citizen of the United States
- Be a legal resident of the county
- Be at least 17.5 years of age to register and 18 years of age to vote
- Not be serving a sentence for conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude
- Have not been found mentally incompetent by a judge
