Forsyth County Elections Supervisor Barbara Luth said she expects to see more than 800 voters show up this weekend for the state’s second venture into Saturday voting.

“I think voters liked it last time so they’re going to come again this time,” Luth said. “We had over 600 come last time.

“People like the idea of a Saturday where they don’t have to work and so they can come in.”

The July 31 primary is just the second time the county has held a Saturday election. The first was in March for the presidential preference election.

Saturday voting is part of a state law, introduced by District 23 state Rep. Mark Hamilton of Cumming, recently passed to give voters more access to the polls.

Saturday’s voting will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Forsyth County Administration Building, 110 E. Main St. in Cumming.

Advance voting in the July 31 primary election runs July 23-27.
