Precinct Cards
When your voter registration has been accepted, you will be issued a precinct card. This card lists your voting districts and precincts.  It is not required when you vote.   Learn about changing your address on your precinct card.

If you have misplaced or have not received your precinct card within three to four weeks of submitting your voter registration application, please contact the Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections office at 706-613-3150 to request a new precinct card or to check the status of your application. You may also check on your application status through the Georgia Secretary of State website.
