Registered voters in Gwinnett County will soon receive new precinct ID cards in the mail.
“Georgia law requires that we issue new cards to notify voters when their political districts have changed, so we will send out cards starting June 8 in preparation for this year’s upcoming elections,” said Lynn Ledford, Elections Supervisor.
The yellow cards will include the voter’s polling location and all political districts for the residential address. Voters should keep these cards for their records. If the address shown on the card is incorrect, voters need to provide the correct address and send it to the Elections Office. If the cards are received by the voter registration deadline, a new precinct card will be issued with the updated information.
Voters can also visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at www.sos.georgia.gov/MVP/Login.aspx to find their poll location, as well as view their registration and absentee ballot request status, find early voting locations and view sample ballots for upcoming elections.
The 2012 General Primary/Nonpartisan election will take place on Tuesday, July 31. The deadline to register to vote and be eligible to cast a ballot in the election is Monday, July 2. Registered voters may request an absentee ballot by mail or cast their ballots in person from July 9 to July 27, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elections Office, located at 455 Grayson Highway in Lawrenceville. Advance voting options will also be available for the election; visit www.gwinnettelections.com for locations and dates.
