Today is Friday, January 8, 2021, and if you had to vote a provisional ballot in the Senate and PSC runoff election on Tuesday, you have until 5 p.m. to make your vote count.

The process is called “curing” your ballot and it’s simple:

  • Go to the Elections and Registration Office in the Historic Courthouse in Jonesboro. The entrance is in the rear of the building.
  • Go up the stairs or ramp to the window, where a clerk will assist you.
  • Show your state-approved identification and present your signed affidavit.
  • That’s it!

The Georgia Democratic Party also offers a way for voters to submit an affidavit online at

The Georgia GOP does not appear to offer a ballot cure link on its website.

To check the status of your absentee or provisional ballot, log into the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at
