Fulton County reports almost 225,000 ballots cast in early voting

Fulton County has reported that 224,653 residents voted early for the 2018 General and Special Election. The county has seen the number of early voters steadily increase and accredits the growth to its many Early Voting locations, additional outreach locations and extended hours.

“We knew we could break 200,000 early voters but because of the momentum of people heading to the polls, we hit over 224,000,” said Richard Barron, Director, Fulton County Registration and Elections. “Reaching this number of early voters supports our opening many locations to provide our residents with an opportunity to choose when and where they want to vote.”

“Based on these numbers, we believe our residents appreciate the many locations and extended hours we provided for them to vote in this election,” said Barron. “We opened 20 Early Voting sites plus 11 Outreach locations on college campuses and at senior centers.”
