Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1 for the Presidential Preference Primary.

Voters must go to their designated polling place to vote on Election Day. Please verify your Election Day precinct prior to heading out to vote. For all in-person voting, remember to bring one of the six acceptable forms of photo identification. Please note there is no voting of any kind the Monday prior to any election.

Schools No Longer Serve as Election Day Voting Polling Places

If you previously voted at a school, visit the Voter Registrations and Elections Department page or to verify your Election Day polling place.

Advance Voting Location May Not Be Your Designated Election Day Polling Place

Remember, four of the five Advance Voting locations (Cumming City Hall, Hampton Park Library, Midway Park Community Building, and Sharon Springs Park Community Building) are Election Day polling places, however, on Election Day only those voters who are assigned to those designated polling places may cast their ballot there.  Visit the Voter Registrations and Elections Department page or to verify your Election Day polling place.

Administration Building Not Open For Voting On Election Day

Please be advised: The Forsyth County Administration Building, located at 110 E. Main Street in Cumming, is open for Advance Voting but is NOT an Election Day polling place. The Voter Registrations and Elections Office in the Administration Building is open all day on Election Day to answer any questions a voter may have, however, there is no voting in the Administration Building on Election Day. A voter’s polling location on Election Day is specific to where their residence (as registered) falls within designated precinct lines and in most cases is no more than 5 miles from a voter’s house. Visit the Voter Registrations and Elections Department page or to verify your Election Day polling place.
