Cobb working to make absentee voting process easier for November election
There have been posts that Cobb County will not allow absentee balloting for the November general election. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, we are making the absentee ballot process more efficient for the coming election.
The Information Services Department has generated a custom application form that will save elections workers thousands of hours of processing time and allow for faster turnaround of ballots.
More absentee ballot drop off locations will be available and will give voters more secure and convenient choices for dropping off their completed ballots rather than using the mail. You can apply for an absentee ballot at any time by visiting:
Staff will begin the mailing process for the November election on Sept. 15.

Drop box locations available for absentee ballots
Cobb Elections staff has installed four official ballot drop boxes, so voters can return absentee ballots contact-free. These locations are monitored by cameras to ensure the security of ballots.
Drop boxes are available at these locations:
- East Cobb Government Service Center, 4400 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta
- South Cobb Government Service Center, 4700 Austell Road, Austell
- North Cobb Regional Library, 3535 Old 41 Highway NW, Kennesaw
- Elections Main Office, 736 Whitlock Ave., Marietta
Voters are encouraged to vote by absentee ballot so they do not have to wait in line to vote in-person. Public health concerns will likely impact in-person voting availability and wait times may increase due to social distancing and sanitation requirements. For an absentee ballot application or for more information on ballot return options, please visit the Absentee Voting page on cobbcounty.org/elections.
