Absentee Voting by Mail

Absentee ballots through the mail:
Any eligible voter requesting an absentee ballot through the mail must submit a request in writing to the Gordon County Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office.  You do not have to provide a reason when requesting an absentee ballot by mail. The application may either be mailed to the Gordon County Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office at PO Box 715, Calhoun, GA 30703-0715 or faxed to (706) 629-7198. To ensure that you have time to receive your ballot and have it returned back to us by Election Day, we recommend you make your request as early as possible.
