Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections will be required to change nine polling locations for the July 22 primary runoff election. All affected voters will be notified of the changes in location by first-class mail. All concerned residents are urged to check online to find out if the change would affect their poll on election day.

“Unfortunately, we will not be able to use eight schools and one church as polling locations for the upcoming runoff election,” said Richard Barron, the department’s director. “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 voters who were registered to vote before the April 21 deadline and who live within the districts where runoff elections are taking place are eligible to vote in the runoff, even if they did not vote May 20.
