ALL FULTON COUNTY POLLING SITES TO REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 9 PM

June 09, 2020
At the request of the Fulton County Department of Registration & Elections, the Superior Court of Fulton County has issued an order extending voting hours today until 9 p.m. at all locations. Any voter in line at that time will be allowed to vote.

Beginning at 7 p.m., ballots will no longer be scanned, but will be placed in provisional ballot envelopes, per O.C.G.A. 21-4-418(d).

Today is the first election where most poll workers in Fulton County and across Georgia operated the new election equipment introduced this year. While the majority of polling places operated smoothly, a number of sites experienced challenges with equipment throughout the day.

The extended hours will provide more time for any voters affected by these issues to cast their ballots tonight.
