  • If you are not sure if you are registered, please call or email us first. Duplicate registrations cost us a lot of time!
  • If you move to another county, you must re-register in that county, using the State of Georgia Application for Voter Registration form. (No other forms, even if we send them to you, will "work" to register you in another county.)
  • Note: If you move within Walker County you must notify us 30 days prior to any election.
  • If you have moved at all, do not assume you are still registered. You must notify us of your new address
  • If you are not sure if you are registered, please check first on the Secretary of State's website: https://sos.ga.gov/

Registering for the First Time in Georgia by Mail 

Any elector who registered for the first time in Georgia by mail, and did not provide identification at the time of registering, may provide one of the six (6) items of photo identification listed on the Photo ID tab, or for the electors’ first time voting, may provide one of the following forms of identification: copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector.

If you forget to enclose your I.D. with your application, it could delay your voting process the first time you go to the polls.
