Advanced voting is underway in Georgia for the May 24th Primary election. Georgia saw the highest day 1 turnout for early voting before a Georgia primary and nearly double the number of ballots casted compared to the first day of early voting in the 2020 primary election. As of May 10th, more than 254,000 Georgians have voted. In Gwinnett, nearly 14,000 voters have voted during the early voting period. Of those early voters, 49% casted democratic ballots while 50% casted republican ballots (Statewide, 42% casted democratic ballots while 57% casted republican ballots).
Gwinnett County has 11 advance in-person voting locations. The county is also providing sample ballots in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese. However, official ballots will be provided only in English and Spanish. Sample ballots are listed below:
Democratic Consolidated Sample Ballot
Republican Consolidated Sample Ballot
Nonpartisan Consolidated Sample Ballot
As these are consolidated ballots, none are specific to an individual voter’s ballot. To view a copy of your specific ballot, log in at My Voter Page.
There are two noteworthy changes for the 2022 Primary Election. The first is redistricting. The Georgia General Assembly gathered last November for a special session on redistricting and reapportionment. This impacted the district lines for U.S. House of Representatives, State House, State Senate, County Commission, and County School Board. The second is the Gwinnett County Board of Education election. During the 2022 legislative session, Governor Kemp signed SB 369, making School Board elections in Gwinnett County nonpartisan. Candidates will no longer have a political party affiliate next to their name on the ballot, and the election will be decided in the May 24 primary. The Gwinnett Chamber hosted a Candidates Forum in April for all candidates running for School Board Districts 2 and 4.
