Fulton County voter educators will be at the following community events:

September 13 – 8 a.m.

“The efforts of voter education and outreach are designed to increase voter awareness, confidence, trust and participation,” said Richard Barron, Director of Fulton Registration and elections. “Fulton County voter educators are available to provide information and answer questions well in advance of Election Day.”

The Voter Education Team is able to provide answers to questions such as:

  • Will my vote be counted?
  • Why is early voting so important?
  • Am I registered?
  • Can I vote at any location?
  • What do I need to bring with me to the polls?
  • How do I vote absentee? and
  • What's a provisional ballot?

“By providing information to as many voters as possible, we are able to reduce many of the issues that voters face while registering to vote and exercising their right to vote in the manner in which they choose,” said Barron.
