How to Register to Vote
Note: Voter registration is a county function. Georgia counties issue precinct cards after reviewing and processing applications. 

To register to vote you must:
• Be a citizen of the United States
• Be a legal resident of the county
• Be at least 171/2 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 
Your social security number is also required at time of registration.

 Georgia citizens have access to several convenient methods of registering to vote:

  • Download, complete, and mail a voter registration application.
  • Contact your local county board of registrars' office or election office, public library, public assistance office, recruitment office, schools and other government offices for a mail-in registration form.
  • Registration is offered when you apply for or renew your driver's license at Department of Motor Vehicle Safety drivers license posts.
  • College students can obtain Georgia voter registration forms, or the necessary forms to register in any state in the U.S., from their school registrar's office or from the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

You may confirm your voter registration status through MVP. Registered voters within the City Limits of Clarkston will reflect Precint CK Clarkston International Bible, 3895 Church Street as their location. If you have submitted a voter registration application within the prior three to four weeks and your name does not appear, please contact your local county registrar office to check the status of your application.

Change of Residence
Voters are required to notify the board of registrars of their county of residence whenever they move.

If you move within the same county in which you are registered to vote and don't notify the registrar at least 30 days prior to an election, you may vote in your old polling place for that election. You must file a notice of your new address. This can be done by writing to your county board of registrars' office, or by submitting a new voter registration application.

If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote within 30 days of an election, you may vote in your old precinct for that election.

If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote in excess of 30 days prior to an election, you have lost your eligibility to vote in the county of your old residence. You must register to vote in your new county of residence. You will be assigned a new voting precinct and polling location. Remember, if you don't register to vote by the deadline, you cannot vote in that particular election.

Precinct Cards
If you have misplaced or have not received your precinct card within three to four weeks of submitting your voter registration application, please contact your local county registration office to request a new precinct card or to check the status of your application. You may also check whether you are registered through MVP. Registered voters within the City Limits of Clarkston will reflect Precint CK Clarkston International Bible, 3895 Church Street as their location.
