Change of  Residence

Voters are required to notify the board of registrars of their county of residence whenever they move.

If you move within the same county in which you are registered to vote and don't notify the registrar at least 30 days prior to an election, you may vote in your old polling place for that election. You must file a notice of your new address. This can be done by writing to your county board of registrars' office or by submitting a new voter registration application.

If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote within 30 days of an election, you may vote in your old precinct for that election.

If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote in excess of 30 days prior to an election, you have lost your eligibility to vote in the county of your old residence. You must register to vote in your new county of residence. You will be assigned a new voting precinct and polling location. Remember, if you don't register to vote by the deadline, you cannot vote in that particular election.

If you move to a new county, you must fill out another voter registration application. If you move within Dade County, you must fill out a change of address form with your new address 30 days prior to an election. This can be done by coming into the Dade County Board Elections & Registration Office or writing:
 

Dade County Election Supervisor
P.O. Box 152
Trenton, GA  30752-0152

If writing, please provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
