What do you do about Post Office Boxes and Mail Drops?
In order to register to vote, you must provide our office with a street address. This allows us to assign you to the proper precinct. Voters who receive their mail at a post office box or a commercial mail drop are asked to provide both a street address and a mailing address. (The only exception is the Domestic Violence Shelter.) Voters who are homeless must specify the location to which they most often return.

If the new address as reported by the U.S. Postal Service is a post office box or mail drop within Clayton County, this information will be added to your existing voter registration record, and your physical address will not be changed. If you have moved to a different physical address, make any needed corrections and return the signed card to our office. If you have not physically moved, and have simply chosen to receive your mail at a mail box, no further action on your part is needed.

If the new address as reported by the U.S. Postal Service is a post office box outside Clayton County, your voter registration record will be placed on inactive status. For more information, please call the Auditor's Office at 563-245-1106.
