• Polling locations changed ahead of 6th District election

    By: Richard Elliot


    NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Fulton County is moving 12 of its polling places to different locations a little more than three weeks out from the highly watched Sixth Congressional District runoff election because officials said they had no choice.

    Most of the polls are located in Fulton County School District schools, and shortly after the April 18 primary election, school officials informed elections director Richard Barron that they needed to renovate those buildings, so they could not be polling locations for the June 20 runoff between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff.

    “We found out after the April 18 election,” Barron said. “Then we had to get our board to approve it, and then it takes time to get the letters printed and get the cards ordered.”

    Barron said letters to the heads of households went out Monday. They’ll also be sending out new precinct cards.

    “We’re 26 days out from the election,” said Barron. “We need to make sure to keep reminding the voters, and through social media we’re also trying to get the word out.”

    Most changes are within a mile or two of the original locations, but some are more than three miles away.

    Leslie Trice is a Sixth District voter and plans to vote no matter what.

    “I plan on voting no matter where,” said Trice. “But some people will just say forget it. I’m not going to vote. This is too much of a hassle.”
