(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this chapter, a qualified absentee elector, as defined in Code Section 21-2-380, may apply not earlier than 180 days before an election for a special write-in absentee ballot. This ballot shall be for presidential electors and United States senator or representative in Congress.
(b) The application for a special write-in absentee ballot may be
made on the federal post card application form or on a form
prescribed by the Secretary of State.
(c) In order to qualify for a special write-in absentee ballot, the
voter must state that he or she is unable to vote by regular
absentee ballot or in person due to requirements of military service
or due to living in isolated areas or extremely remote areas of the
world. This statement may be made on the federal post card
application or on a form prepared by the Secretary of State and
supplied and returned with the special write-in absentee ballot.
(d) Upon receipt of said application, the registrars shall issue the
special write-in absentee ballot which shall be prescribed and
provided by the Secretary of State. Such ballot shall permit the
elector to vote by writing in a party preference for each office,
the names of specific candidates for each office, or the name of the
person whom the voter prefers for each office.
