According to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office, a new online portal will allow Georgia voters to request absentee ballots for the November elections.

The Secretary of State’s office unveiled the new online portal this week ahead of the November election. They say that the new online portal will allow voters with a driver’s license or state ID card to request an absentee ballot entirely online.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger says, “Georgia is constantly searching for new and innovative ways to expand access to the ballot and uphold the integrity of the vote.” Raffensperger added, “We are encouraging Georgia voters who are particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 threat to use our new online absentee ballot request portal to request absentee ballots safely and securely from their computers or phones. This new tool will help counties stay on top of the several million absentee ballot requests expected in November.”
