Proposed changes, if approved, may alter where residents will vote

 

Residents are encouraged to attend a series of open house meetings to review potential changes to county polling places and voting precinct lines. The changes have been drafted by the Forsyth County Board of Voter Registrations and, if approved, would go into effect during the 2020 election cycle.

 

“The board is continuously looking for ways to enhance the voting process for residents and has been carefully preparing these changes over the past few months,” said Voter Registration and Elections Director Mandi Smith. “If approved, these proposed plans may alter where residents will vote, but district lines and who represents residents will not change.”

 

Public information open house sessions on the proposed precinct and polling place changes will be held at the following locations, dates and times:

 

Forsyth County Elections Office (1201 Sawnee Dr.)

Thursday, Aug. 22 - 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
