The Elections Division of the Secretary of State’s Office organizes and oversees all election activity, including voter registration, municipal, state, county and federal elections. The Peach County Board of Elections is responsible for conducting fair and impartial elections and registering local residents to vote. Elections and registration are conducted in accordance with the Georgia Election code, State Election Board Rules, Federal and Local Laws.

When you arrive at your polling place, you will be required to present one of the following forms of identification:
- A Georgia driver's license, even if it is expired
- A photo ID issued by a state or federal government agency
- A valid U.S. passport
- An employee ID card containing your photograph and issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority, or other entity of Georgia
- A valid U.S. military ID card
- A valid tribal ID card.
- If you do not have one of the above forms of ID, the State of Georgia offers a free Voter Identification Card.
Provisional voting allows you to cast a ballot in person even if the requirements for doing so cannot be met at the time. The provisional ballot will county if the problem is solved within three days after Election Day. The three reasons for voting a provisional ballot are:
- You are unable to show the required forms of photo ID when you vote in person
- When you first registered to vote in Georgia you registered by mail, did not provide any identification at the time and are unable to present acceptable identification the first time you vote in person
- Your name does not appear on the list of registered voters in the precinct
If you vote a provisional ballot because you did not have acceptable identification, you will have three days from the close of the polls to present acceptable identification to your county registrar office for your vote to count.
