CHECK YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT

We checked on our completed absentee ballot and here’s what we found (“accepted”), right column.

 

So you took the plunge and completed that absentee ballot. Now what? You know when you mailed it so the next step is to see if it has been received and “accepted” at the elections office. You can do so with just a few clicks. Here’s what to do:

  • Visit the Georgia My Voter Page: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
  • Fill out the MVP Login form (first initial, last name, county, date of birth and you’re done).
  • Scroll down and click the link that says “Check absentee ballot status.”
  • Click to ensure there is a date next to “Absentee ballot received.”

In the above box, right side, it shows you how our ballot process worked. We requested the ballot and it was mailed to our home. We dropped it at the Rome post office the next da and it was marked as accepted May 12.

If you’re  concerned about the status of your ballot, reach out to the local Elections Office to double check (BradyR@floydcountyga.org).
