The “My Voter Page” (MVP) app is a great free resource for voting information. Georgia voters can view their specific sample ballot, find their polling locations, check voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot.  All of this information is available on mobile devices on Apple and Android platforms.  To download the app search for “GA Votes” in the app store.

You can still vote in the runoff even if you did not vote in the primary election in May.  If you did not vote in the primary you can choose either the republican or democratic ballot. If you did vote in the primary election in May and you chose a republican ballot, you will only be able to vote in the republican runoff.  If you chose a democratic ballot in the May primary you will only be able to vote in the democratic runoff.
