Who Can Return Your Ballot?
You! The best course of action is to personally mail or personally deliver your ballot yourself. However, Georgia law allows the below individuals to mail or deliver your ballot for you with your authorization:
Your mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, spouse, son, daughter, niece, nephew,
grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law;
An individual residing in the same household as the voter; or
The caretaker of a voter with disabilities.
You should not give your ballot to anyone else. Third-party groups, candidates, campaigns or anybody other than the people listed above are not allowed to collect your ballot (a practice known as “ballot harvesting”). It’s against the law in Georgia. If an unknown person attempts to collect your ballot, even
if they say they are from the Secretary of State’s office or your county elections office, please report the person to the Secretary of State’s office.
