Election officials double checking voter list for problems
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
An audit of voter roles in
Fulton County turned up a lot of problems. In Sandy Springs, nearly 8% of voters
were listed in the wrong district or under the wrong address. Dougherty County election officials say
they've been double checking their voter list for problems and working to
educate voters about upcoming changes.
The November election will be the first
since redistricting in Albany. A lot of people who used to live in
District 5 were shifted to either District 2 or 3.
That means they could vote at a new
precinct.Election workers are trying to make sure all registered voters get a
new a precinct identification card, so there won't be any confusion on election
"Of course every voter
received a precinct identification card, any changes that are made to your
record, as if a name change or street, if you change your address it's precinct
identification card by law, that we are required to send out to the voter
notifying them of the changes in their status," said Ginger Nickerson,
Elections Supervisor, Dougherty County Board of Elections.
