FORSYTH COUNTY -- After months of primaries, polls and campaigns, Election Day is almost here.
On Tuesday, Forsyth County voters can cast a ballot at their polling location for local, state and federal offices as well as local and state issues in the Nov. 8 general election.
Barbara Luth, the county’s supervisor of voter registrations and elections, said she is expecting a big turnout since this is an election with no incumbent president.
“We’ve always had over 80 percent [of registered voters turn out]; I’m looking at probably we’re going to be closer to 90,” she said. “I think the last non-incumbent one we had something like 87 percent.”
Forsyth County has 16 polling places, and voters must go to their designated poll — unlike advance voting when anyone could vote at any location.
Voting will be open from 7 a.m.-7p.m. Tuesday.
“We are open at 16 polls, and anyone that has not voted in advance voting will need to go to their poll on Election Day, the one that they’re assigned to,” Luth said. “If you’re in line at 7 p.m. when the polls close, you will be entitled to vote.”
Proper identification is required to cast a ballot.
Throughout voting, Luth and other county officials have stressed reading ballots before going into the booth.
“If you haven’t voted, please research the questions so it takes you a little less time to vote because you’ve had all of your questions answered before you get there,” she said. “Some of the referendums and stuff are a little on the long side. We’re going to have plenty of machinery and plenty of people to help them.”
To find out their precinct, voters can go Mvp.sos.ga.gov or call the county department at (770) 781-2118.
