STUDENT VOTING in Georgia

According to the U.S. Supreme Court, students have the right to register and vote in their college towns if they meet the same requirements as everyone else!

ID requirements

All GA voters must show their photo ID at the polls to vote.  ONLY student ID from public colleges or universities will be accepted.  If you attend a private school, use another form of acceptable identification.   

Acceptable Identification is:

A Georgia driver’s license, even if expired;

Any valid state or federal issued photo ID, including a free Voter ID Card issued by your county registrar’s office or by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS);

Valid U.S. passport;

Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U. S. Government, Georgia, or any county, munici-pality, board, authority or other entity of this

Valid U.S. military photo ID;

Valid tribal photo ID

Student ID cards: If you are currently enrolled in a state college, university or some Georgia technical colleges, you may use your school photo ID. If you attend a private college or university, you must show one of the other acceptable forms of photo identification. For more information, call the Geor-gia Secretary of State’s office at (877) 725-9797.

Do I register at School or Home?

Registering to vote at a school residence:

 If you move to attend school in Georgia with the intent of making it your fixed home, you can establish voting residency at that address.

Registering to vote at a home residence:

 Some students may choose to register or remain regis-tered at their home (prior) address if they intend to return there after college. In this case, a student may need to vote by absentee ballot.
