Active Georgia voters should have recently received applications for absentee ballots in the mail. The absentee ballots will be for the May 19 election. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger issued the order in an effort to reduce the risk of exposure of COVID-19 to voters and poll workers. 

While polls will still be open, Raffensperger is encouraging voters to fill out the applications and mail them in to the Charlton County Elections Office.
