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 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.
