Proposed Precinct and Polling Place Changes

Proposed Precinct & Polling Place Changes

The Forsyth County Board of Voter Registrations and Elections proposes to create several new voting precincts and polling places, change the boundaries of certain voting precincts, and change certain polling locations, as listed in the Voter Information Guide below.  A hearing to approve a final order adopting these changes is scheduled to take place on October 1, 2019.  Any person objecting to any of these changes must file his or her objections prior to October 1, 2019 at the Forsyth County Voter Registrations & Elections Office, 1201 Sawnee Drive, Cumming, GA 30040.  Any person with questions regarding these precinct and polling place changes may contact Mandi Smith, Director, Forsyth County Voter Registrations and Elections at 770-781-2118 ext. 9.

Forsyth County currently has 16 election day voting precincts and 15 election day polling places.  If approved, the proposed changes will result in Forsyth County having 20 election day voting precincts and 20 election day polling places beginning with the 2020 election cycle.   If approved, where you vote may change, however, who represents you will not change.

Precinct boundary maps with polling places noted are currently available for you to review below.  Printed maps are also on display in the Voter Registrations and Elections Office, 1201 Sawnee Drive, Cumming, GA 30040. Interested citizens are encouraged and invited to view the maps at the office.  The available maps illustrate the current precinct configurations as well as the proposed modified precinct configurations and polling places. 

Additionally, 5 Public Information Open House sessions are scheduled at four different locations throughout the county for the public to view the maps and discuss the proposed changes. 

The schedule for the Public Information Open House sessions is as follows:
