Watch for yellow cards in your mailbox. Registered voters in Gwinnett County are being mailed new Precinct ID cards.
“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,” Gwinnett Elections Supervisor Lynn Ledford announced.
The cards include the voter’s polling location and all political districts for the residential address including Congressional, State Senate and House, Gwinnett County Commission and Board of Education. Voters should sign and keep these cards for their records.
If the address shown on the card is incorrect, voters need to provide the correct address on the card and mail it back to the Gwinntt Voter Registration and 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. The card includes 2012 election dates as reminders to voters.
Registered voters may request an absentee ballot by mail or cast their ballots in person from July 9-27 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gwinnett Elections Office, 455 Grayson Highway, in Lawrenceville. Advance voting options will also be available for the election. Visit www.gwinnettelections.com for locations and dates.
