COIVD-19 election impacts
The elections team is currently preparing to hold secure, fair and safe elections on Aug. 11 for the state primary election and Nov. 3 for the state general election. At this time, we are planning to hold elections under existing laws, with procedure changes that will allow us to keep voters and election workers as safe as possible. This includes a plan to process an increase in mail-in ballots, a plan for in-person voting that meets social distancing guidelines and providing our expertise as changes to procedure are considered at county, state and federal levels.

Notice to Precinct 9 voters
The polling place for Precinct 9 voters has changed; you now vote at the Municipal Service Center (7305 Oxford St.). The former polling place at Knollwood Place Apartments can no longer serve as a voting location due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting need to restrict public access to that facility.
Your next election is on Aug. 11, 2020 — the state primary.
