Polls open at 7 a.m. on Super Tuesday, March 1, 2016.  Georgia voters will determine how the state’s 193 delegates get divvied up.  Polls close at 7 p.m. on Tuesday and there’s no early voting on Monday.

What to bring

Approved forms of identification include a Georgia driver’s license, even if it’s expired; a state-issued voter identification card; a valid U.S. passport; and a valid U.S. military photo ID.

Before you go

Voters can see their polling location, view personalized sample ballots and verify their registration status on the secretary of state’s “My Voter Page” website.

Also worth reviewing before voting: the Georgia Voter Guide, a product of the League of Women Voters of Georgia and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

At the polls, pick one ballot

Because the state conducts an “open” primary, voters may vote on a ballot of any party – you make your choice at the polls. You cannot, however, vote in more than one party’s primary.

Don’t make this mistake

Georgia code stipulates that “no elector shall use photographic or other electronic monitoring or recording devices or cellular telephones while such elector is within the enclosed space in a polling place.” #noselfiesallowed

Problem at the polls

If you see or experience problems, first contact your local elections office. If local officials can’t help, the secretary of state’s office has an online complaint form via the “elections” tab at
