May 19, 2020 General Primary, NonPartisan General Election & Presidential Preference Primary (postponed from 3/24/20)


Please be advised, voters are highly encouraged to vote by mail in the upcoming election, if possible. 
On March 24, the Georgia Secretary of State announced that an absentee ballot application is being mailed to all voters in active status in the statewide voter registration database.  These temporary steps are being made because of the COVID-19 pandemic threatening public health in Georgia and around the world.  This is a concerted effort by the State to allow Georgia voters to exercise their right to vote without leaving their homes and ensuring they can vote without fear for their health.  

Voting in person remains an option.  Poll Workers will follow the county, state and federal recommended guidelines, which means that extra steps are being taken to limit the threat of COVID-19 at the polling place.  Voters who show up to vote in person will be instructed to maintain a safe distance throughout the voting process to help ensure the health and safety of the voters and the poll workers.  Additionally, the voting equipment and other items will be sanitized routinely. 

As of March 26, Advance Voting is scheduled to take place from Monday, April 27 through Friday, May 15, including, Saturday, May 9.   Any Forsyth County registered voter may take advantage of Advance Voting in person during the hours and dates posted, regardless of where they are assigned to vote on Election Day.  Only the Elections Office is open for all days of Advance Voting.

Due to the length of the ballot, voters are encouraged to review their Sample Ballot prior to going to the polls to vote and may do so by going to 

All votes already cast in person and all voted absentee by mail ballots returned for the March 24 Presidential Preference Primary will be counted.
