State law requires the public availability of voter lists including names and address of registered voters. A recently enacted program, VoteSafe, provides that the residence address of a qualified participant will remain confidential at all times from public disclosure and shall be used only for voter registration purposes. Georgians can participate in the VoteSafe Program if they are a resident of the State of Georgia; are a registered voter; and are under either a protective order, restraining order, or are a resident of a family violence shelter, all as defined by Georgia law.
To inquire about registering to vote as a Votesafe voter, simply refer to www.sos.ga.gov/votesafe to review the program’s eligibility requirements and download the required application forms. For additional information, please contact the Secretary of State’s Elections Division at 404-656-2871, or contact your county registrar’s office.
