My Grandma Wants to Vote, Despite Corona Virus…
My Grandmother and entire family have decided to stay home
since my school cancelled classes yesterday for we are not sure how long.
My Grandmother asked my Mom, what about the Georgia
Primaries next Tuesday? Can I still vote by mail?
We realized that there are a lot of elderly and families who would
like to vote but are staying home. I don’t want our elderly or anyone
else to get sick.
We have included absentee voting information for Georgia and all states below.
My family and I wanted to share this with as many people as possible,
and we ask you to share with others as well.
Thank you for your help!

Get your absentee ballot from your state or territory.
- Visit your state or territorial election office website and look for “Absentee Voting” or “Voting By Mail.” If you don’t see either term, try using the site’s search tool.
- Your state may require you to have a valid excuse to vote absentee. Acceptable excuses vary by state. Most include:
- Being unable to get to your polling place due to illness, injury, or disability.
- Being on business travel or vacation outside of your county or city of residence on Election Day
- Being a student at an out-of-state college or university
This National Conference of State Legislatures table shows which states require an excuse.
Follow your state’s instructions for requesting an absentee or vote-by-mail ballot.
