Voter Change of Residence

Change of Address Notification

Voters are required to notify the Board of Registrars of their county of residence whenever they move.

Moving Within the County

 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. However, you  must still file a notice of your new address. This can be done by  submitting a new voter registration application (PDF) or by writing to the Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections office:

P.O. Box 1828
Athens, GA 30603

Moving Outside the County

 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.
