Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the presidential preference primary, general primary, nonpartisan and special elections in Georgia were all pushed to June 9, the Georgia secretary of state's office announced April 9—and since state law requires three weeks of in-person early voting, this early voting process begins May 18 through June 5 in Georgia. Any vote cast prior to the election date changes will still be counted for the June 9 primary election.

Voters will be required to stand at least 6 feet apart, hand sanitizer will be available at all polling locations, and poll workers will be disinfecting and sanitizing Georgia's new $104 million touch-screen voting equipment regularly, according to the Fulton County registration and elections office.

Since churches, senior centers, schools and libraries are closed because of the pandemic, only five early voting locations will be open in Fulton County.

Registered voters can cast an early voting ballot at any of the following locations from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and Saturday, May 30:

  • Alpharetta Library, 10 Park Plaza, Alpharetta

  • C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center, 3201 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive SW, Atlanta

  • Garden Hills Elementary School Gymnasium, 285 Sheridan Drive, Atlanta

  • Sandy Springs Library, 395 Mount Vernon Hwy. NE, Sandy Springs

  • South Fulton Service Center, 5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park


Polls will be closed Memorial Day on May 25. On election day, voters must report to their assigned precinct polling location.
