Voters in north Fulton County must go to a different polling place to cast their votes in the upcoming runoff.
Fulton County announced on Wednesday that is changing the locations of 12 polling places for the June 20 election when voters will decide if Jon Ossoff or Karen Handel will fill the congressional seat in Georgia’s 6th District.
The county cited “unforeseen circumstances” as to why the locations changed.
“The locations will either be undergoing renovations or have scheduled events. The timing of this election is causing us to make these changes,” Richard Baron, Fulton County’s director of registration and elections, said in a statement. “I strongly encourage residents to take a moment to verify if they are affected by the changes prior to Election Day.”
Fulton County says it mailed 109,296 notification letters to voters on Monday and that concerned residents should check online to find out if the changes affect their polling place.
All voters who registered to vote by the Sunday, May 21, deadline and who live in the district are eligible to vote in the runoff, even if they did not vote on April 18.
Voters with questions about the elections or their voter status are encouraged to visit the Secretary of State’s “My Voter Page” at mvp.sos.state.ga.gov or contact the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections at 404-612-7020.
