After a week of record-setting advance voting turnout in Gwinnett County, Gwinnett Voter Registrations and Elections is reminding those who haven’t voted where and how they can vote early for the Nov. 3 election.

Voters can still request an absentee mail ballot for the Nov. 3 General and Special Election through Oct. 30, but elections officials say it’s best to apply as soon as possible. Voting by Mail is an option for all voters, not just those who will be out of town. A completed application must first be received before an absentee ballot is issued. Voters may apply for a mail-in ballot online at BallotRequest.SOS.GA.gov, use the forms at GwinnettElections.com,email Absentee@GwinnettCounty.com or call 678.226.7210. 

Voters may return their voted absentee ballot by mail or in one of the 23 official ballot drop boxes. No postage is necessary on ballots placed in the drop boxes. The drop boxes have 24-hour surveillance and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. The drop boxes can be found at the Elections Offices, various County parks and recreational facilities and Gwinnett County Public Library branches. See the full list of secure drop box locations at GwinnettElections.com.

Voters can track the status of their absentee ballot from the time it’s mailed to the time it’s accepted online at Georgia.BallotTrax.net/Voter.

Voters who choose to vote in person on Election Day, Nov. 3, must vote at their assigned polling location between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The Voter Registrations and Elections Office is not a polling location on Election Day.
