GENERAL PRIMARY ELECTIONS SAMPLE BALLOTS for MAY 20 , 2014
We have three SAMPLE ballots for the May 20, 2014 GENERAL PRIMARY ELECTION. The Republican and Democratic ballots are “consolidated ballots” containing the names of all Republican and Democratic candidates, as well as the names of all Non-Partisan candidates. For this nominating election process, each voter in Fayette County must select one of the three ballots in order to vote -voters here in Georgia are not registered by political party and must make a selection of parties when voting in a primary election such as the May 20th election. If you do not wish to vote for either the Republican or Democratic candidates, you may choose to vote the Non-Partisan ballot only.
Each voter is eligible to vote for only those races that are applicable to the new county-wide Commissioner and Board of Education member and other races that represent them within the county. You may go to www.vote.ga.gov, which is a state-wide database, and enter your personal information and take a look at those races which represent you and where you live. There also are sample ballots which will show you the specific candidates for all Federal, State and local races that apply to you.
We will be mailing all registered voters a new precinct card which will show which of the 5 new Commissioner and Board of Education districts have been assigned, based upon the new map approved by the Federal District Court Judge Timothy Batten on February 18, 2014.
PLEASE NOTE, THERE HAS BEEN NO CHANGE TO THE VOTING PRECINCTS AND THEIR LOCATIONS DURING THIS DISTRICT ASSIGNMENT PROCESS.
