Gwinnett elections office sends new precinct notices


Gwinnett County voters who have a change in their name, address or polling place will receive a new kind of precinct notification from the Gwinnett Voter Registrations and Elections Office. The new precinct notifications were first mailed out Jan. 30 to about 1,600 registered voters in the Suwanee area whose old polling place opted not to be a voting location any more.

The new notice, a tri-fold pamphlet, will replace the postcard typically sent by the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.

The pamphlet, printed in English and in Spanish, will include the voter’s polling location and all political districts for the residential address. Voters should keep these notifications for their records. However, they are not required in order to vote.

If the voters’ name or address as shown on the notification is incorrect, they need to provide the correct address and send it in the return envelope provided. Voters can visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do to find their poll location, as well as to view their registration and absentee ballot request status, find early voting locations, and view sample ballots for upcoming elections.
