GWINNETT COUNTY COMMISSIONER FOSQUE TO HOST VOTING EDUCATION EVENT FEB. 6
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Jan. 31, 2020) – Gwinnett County District 4 Commissioner Marlene Fosque is hosting a community engagement event on voter education to answer election-related questions and let residents interact with the state’s new voting equipment.
The event will be held Feb. 6 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville in the auditorium.
“We have three big elections coming up this year, and it’s crucial that people understand the electoral process,” Fosque said. “This event is intended to help familiarize people with the voting process and to encourage people to participate in our democracy.”
Gwinnett County Voter Registrations and Elections staff and a representative from the Secretary of State’s Office will cover topics including provisional ballots, absentee and advance voting and navigating the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page website.
The event will feature demonstrations of two sets of the new voting equipment. After the demonstration, attendees will be able to interact with the equipment and have their questions answered by elections professionals.
Staff will also be present in the GJAC breezeway to register new voters. Registered voters also will be able to make name and address changes as needed.
In addition, people looking to give back to the community and be involved in elections can learn how to apply for positions as paid poll officials.
No registration is necessary for this event.
