Fulton expands early voting

Fulton County has expanded early voting for the May 20 primary to take pressure off polling places on Election Day.

Election Director Rick Barron Monday said Fulton is less likely to have the long lines and other problems it’s had at the polls in past elections if more people take advantage of early voting. He said about 500 people had cast early ballots by 2 p.m. Monday.

Fulton opened seven early voting locations Monday and will have a total of 19 locations next week. Early voting runs through May 16. For early voting locations and other information, visit www.fultoncountyga.gov/rae-home.
