The state of Georgia will hold a special senate runoff election on January 5, 2021. If you are registered to vote in Georgia, you should have automatically received your ballot already. If you have not yet registered, visit https://www.fvap.gov/georgia to both register and request a ballot. The deadline to register for this special election is December 7, 2020. If you do not receive your ballot, you can instead complete a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot.
Georgia requires that all paper ballots be returned to local election officials by mail. This can be done through U.S. Embassy Freetown. Ballots can be dropped off at the consular section from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday. When visiting the embassy, please social distance and wear a mask. Stay home if you are sick. Due to COVID-19 related restrictions and potential delays with outgoing mail, we advise that all ballots be submitted to the embassy by Thursday, December 10, 2020.
If you have any questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact the U.S. Embassy in Freetown at ConsularFreetown@state.gov.
Remember, your vote counts!
