If you haven’t received your absentee ballot and Election Day is nearing, you’ll have to vote in person to cast your ballot.

The Georgia’s Secretary of State’s office says you can cancel the absentee ballot by appearing in person before the registrar.

“If you have not received an absentee ballot, or if you have returned the absentee ballot, but the registrars have not received the ballot, you may cancel the absentee ballot by appearing in person before the registrar or absentee ballot clerk and making a written request to have the ballot marked “cancelled.” After satisfying themselves as to your identity, the registrars or absentee ballot clerk shall grant the request and notify the managers of your precinct to permit you to vote in person at that precinct.

Canceled absentee ballots are handled in the same manner as those returned too late to be cast.”

You can find your voting location here.

If you have an absentee ballot but have not returned it to a drop box, you have until 7 p.m. on Election Day to make it count. An interactive map of locations can be found here.
