The Voter Registrations & Elections office will be open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday. For more information, call (770) 781-2118 or visit www.forsythco.com.

Those planning to vote in the July 31 primary have one more day to register.

Monday is the cutoff for registering to vote in the election, said Barbara Luth, Forsyth County’s elections supervisor.

“I hope a lot of people come out and register,” she said. “We’ll be open until 4:30 p.m.”

For those who prefer to register by mail, Luth said registration cards must be postmarked by Monday to be accepted.

Residents can also register in any of the county’s three library branches or the Department of Driver Services, off Pilgrim Mill Road near Ga. 400 at Exit 16.

Luth said it’s been busy in her office recently.

“We’ve been getting more and more people coming in,” she said. “We haven’t been flooded, but we’ve been getting several people coming in, at least two or three an hour, sometimes more. And a lot of calls.”

The county has more than 111,000 registered voters. Luth expects about 25 percent of them to vote this month.

The ballot features several contests for local and state legislative offices, as well as two congressional seats and a referendum on a regional 1-cent sales tax for transportation.
