Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 12 for the state of Georgia, and Hall County has outlined plans to make sure voters are able to cast their ballots safely, quickly and accurately. 

Hall County Elections officials will adhere to social distancing guidelines. One way that they plan to do so is by offering eight voting sites across the county rather than one offered in previous years.

"We will still be sanitizing the equipment behind every voter," said Lori Wurtz, Hall County Elections Director. "We will still have all the same precautions in place as we did in the General Primary due to COVID-19. I want the voters to feel secure when they come in."

In addition to the eight early voting precincts, voters who elect to cast an absentee ballot have a new absentee ballot drop box in the South Hall area, which was added because of the high population in the area.

There will also be an absentee drop box outside of the Hall County Government Center. Both drop boxes are locked, well-lit, and under 24-hour video surveillance.
