As of Oct. 29 some 40,666 Gwinnett County residents have cast their votes during the early voting period and another 11,032 have cast their votes by mail according to Joe Sorenson, spokesman for the county.
A total 19,872 had requested a mail in ballot which means nearly 9,000 voters have yet to mail their ballots. "We expect the remaining ballots to start coming in a flurry," said Sorenson.
In the 2008 presidential elections 50,024 Gwinnett voters cast their votes early while another 31,807 voted by mail.
Registered voters may cast a ballot in person through Friday, Nov. 2, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Gwinnett Elections Office or between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. at one of the following satellite polling locations:
- Centerville Community Center in Snellville
- George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center in Suwanee
- Dacula Park Activity Building in Dacula
- Lucky Shoals Park Community Recreation Center in Norcross
The General Election is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Polls will be open at regular polling locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be no voting on Monday, Nov. 5.
