NORTH FULTON, Ga. – Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections will be required to change nine polling locations for the 2014 Primary Run-Off scheduled for July 22.
“Unfortunately, we will not be able to use eight schools and one church as polling locations for the upcoming run-off election,” states Richard Barron, director of the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections. “The schools will be undergoing renovations and the other location does not allow collection of signatures for a petition outside of the 150 foot buffer that is permissible by Georgia Election Code.”
All affected voters will be notified of the changes in location by first-class mail. All concerned residents are urged to check on-line to find out if the change would affect their poll on election day.
Polling location changes are posted on the department’s website, HYPERLINK "http://www.fultonelections.com" \t "_blank" www.fultonelections.com.
“It is my hope that residents will take a moment to verify if they are affected by the changes prior to election day,” states Barron.
All voters who were registered to vote before the April 21, 2014 deadline and who live within the districts where run-off elections are taking place are eligible to vote in the July 22, 2014 run-off, even if they did not vote on May 20, 2014.
Voters with questions about the elections or their voter status are encouraged to contact the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections at (404) 730-7020. Follow the Department on Twitter, #FultonVotes.
