To verify your  ballot was received and accepted, visit the “My Voter Page” on the Secretary of State’s website by clicking here, navigate to the “Absentee Ballot Portal” tab at the top of the page, and check to see your ballot requested for this cycle is marked “accepted.”

  • If your ballot was rejected, your county elections office will contact you with a document to “cure” or correct your ballot envelope. Contact the Floyd County Registrar to get more information and find out what your options are.

If you do not receive your absentee ballot after submitting your application, contact the Floyd County Registrar to assess your options. If there is not enough time to receive a new absentee ballot, or if for any reason you cannot have another sent to you, you may vote in person. If you attempt to vote in person because you never received a requested absentee ballot, you will have to sign a document attesting that you are only voting once.

If you request and return an absentee ballot, you cannot change your mind and vote in person. Once you return your absentee ballot, you have voted.
