We’ve received multiple calls about absentee ballot applications to Cobb voters who did not request them.  There have been multiple questions and concerns about these mailings.  Neither Cobb County nor the State of Georgia has sent out unsolicited absentee ballot applications.  Several private groups and organizations have been mailing these out.  You can use these forms OR download and fill out your customized absentee ballot application at

These applications are available now.  You do not have to drop them in the mail, you can drop them at any of our absentee ballot drop boxes across the county.  These boxes will be opening on September 16th.  Cobb Elections hopes to have 16 of these locations open by election day.  Current locations can be found at
