If a citizen does not have one of the above acceptable forms of photo ID, the State of Georgia offers a freeVoter Identification Card. An ID card can be issued at the Department of Driver Services or the Voter Registration Office free of charge.
To receive a Voter ID card, the voter must provide:

A first time registrant by mail may also provide one of the following additional forms of identification: a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector.
If the elector is a first time registrant by mail who did not provide one of the acceptable forms of ID at the time of registration, this voter must show proper identification. If the elector is unable to show identification at the time of voting they may vote a provisional ballot which will be counted only if the voter presents identification within the two day period following the election.
