Challenged Voters

Per the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) a challenge can be made to a voter's eligibility to vote.  The challenge must be in writing and needs to specify the grounds of the challenge.  The challenge is brought to the Forsyth County Board of Voter Registrations and Elections (BRE) for review.  The BRE will review and determine if they find probable cause to uphold the challenge or if they will deny the challenge.  See O.C.G.A. 21-2-230 and O.C.G.A. 21-2-229 for more details.  An electronic version of the Georgia Code (O.C.G.A.) can be accessed via LexisNexis using the following link: http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/gacode/default.asp 

Letters are issued to each elector on the Challenged List.  In order to satisfy your challenged status and you reside at the Forsyth County address on the letter, please follow the steps outlined in the letter. If you received the letter challenging your eligibility to vote in the upcoming election and you no longer reside in Forsyth County, Georgia, please complete and sign a request to have your name removed from the voter rolls
