[ARCHIVED] Election Day Poll Location Changes

Due to COVID-19, a total of 45 Fulton County polling locations have changed, affecting thousands of voters. PLEASE CHECK THE GEORGIA MY VOTER PAGE BEFORE GOING TO THE POLLS ON ELECTION DAY.

Letters have been mailed to all affected voters notifying them of these changes.  Click here for the full list of precinct location changes for June 9. 

Accommodations for Voters 75+ and those with Disabilities

Due to social distancing requirements, longer lines may occur at some polling places. Voters over age 75, or voters who have disabilities and need assistance, are not required to wait in line during non-peak times (9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) These voters should speak with a poll worker for assistance.

Absentee Ballots

Remember that all absentee ballots must be received by the Department of Registration & Elections by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Thousands of voters have returned their absentee ballots, and we know many more are expected today and tomorrow.

To help ensure absentee ballots are received in time, Fulton County has installed 20 absentee ballot drop boxes. Ballots are picked up daily from these secure boxes. You can find the list of drop box locations and a finder tool at this page:  Boxes will be locked at 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Please note that Georgia law does not allow absentee ballots to be turned in at a polling place. Voters who requested an absentee ballot and choose to vote in person will be asked to complete an affidavit at their polling place.

If a voter has not received a requested absentee ballot, we ask that they vote at the polls if possible.

Keeping Voters & Poll Workers Safe

Fulton County has put several measures in place to help protect the safety of voters and poll workers. Thank you for your patience as some polling locations will experience longer lines as we implement these safety measures.

  • Providing Personal Protective Equipment for all poll workers, and requiring that they wear this equipment throughout their shift.
  • Voters are asked to wear a face covering to protect yourself and others.
  • Voters will be provided a stylus for voting purposes. This will be sanitized after each voter.
  • Social distancing will be enforced, requiring voters to stand at least 6 feet apart.
  • The number of voters inside the poll at a given time will be limited to maintain social distancing.

Thank you for Supporting Poll Workers

Poll workers are an essential part of the Election Process. In these stressful times, their jobs are more challenging than ever. Please join us in encouraging and thanking these men and women for their vital role in our election process.

New Voting Machines

The June 9 Election is the first time most Georgia voters have used the new election equipment introduced earlier this year. Watch Fulton County’s video about these new machines.
