The Cherokee County Elections and Voter Registration office has released the Early/Advance voting schedule and reminds residents to register to vote ahead of Election Day.
Early voting will be held Oct. 12 through Oct. 22 in the Northside Cherokee Conference Center at the Cherokee Administration Building, located at 1130 Bluffs Parkway in Canton, and the Elections Warehouse located at 400 East Main St. in downtown Canton. The South Annex, 7545 Main St., in Woodstock, also will serve as an early voting location.
“The decision to use the Northside Cherokee Conference Center as an early voting location will help to alleviate space issues at our current headquarters until we can get moved into our new location,” said Cherokee County Elections and Voter Registration Director, Anne Dover.
The Elections Office is scheduled to move to its new location at 193 Lamar Haley Parkway in Canton next year.
Early voting at all three locations will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday, Oct. 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Advance voting will begin the week of Oct. 23 running through Oct. 29, opening three additional voting locations which include the Hickory Flat Library located at 2740 East Cherokee Drive in Canton, Ball Ground Public Library located at 435 Old Canton Road in Ball Ground, and Rose Creek Public Library located at 4476 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock. All six locations will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday voting is set for Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at all six locations.
There will be no voting on Saturday, Oct. 30 or Monday, Nov. 1.
