Gwinnett Commissioner Fosque to host voting education event

Gwinnett County District 4 Commissioner Marlene Fosque will host a community engagement event on voter education 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6 in the auditorium at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville.

“We have three big elections coming up this year, and it’s crucial that people understand the electoral process,” Fosque said. “This event is intended to help familiarize people with the voting process and to encourage people to participate in our democracy.”

The event will cover topics including provisional ballots, absentee and advance voting and navigating the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page website. Participants will also be shown demonstrations of two sets of the new voting equipment. After the demonstration, attendees will be able to interact with the equipment and have questions answered by elections professionals.

New voters will be able to register outside the auditorium. Registered voters will be able to make name and address changes if needed.

Anyone interesting in applying to work as a paid poll officer can learn more at the event as well.

No registration is necessary for this event.
