The Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections is preparing for the March 6 Presidential Preference Primary. But voters don't have to wait to let their choices be known.
Voters can participate by casting their ballots in advance or requesting an absentee ballot in the mail. Voters in Georgia do not have to provide a reason to vote prior to Election Day either by mail (absentee voting) or in person (advance voting).
Fulton County will offer advance voting for the Primary from Feb. 13 to March 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following locations:

College Park, GA 30349
Saturday voting will be offered on Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the three locations listed above.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the Primary is Friday, March 2. Voters can call the Department of Registration and Elections at 404-612-7060 and request that an application for an absentee ballot be mailed, e-mailed or faxed to them. The ballot application can also be downloaded at www.fultoncountyga.gov. The department recommends that voters request and return the absentee ballot application early so that they can receive, vote and return the ballot well before the deadline. The completed application can be dropped off, mailed or faxed to the county. The fax number is 404-730-8839.
