Early Voting Reveals a Peek at the Other Guy's Ballot

Early voting ends Friday. We've got the scoop on what Sandy Springs voters can expect at the polls.


Early voting ends at 5 p.m., Friday. If you go, you only need to present a valid form of ID.

On Wednesday afternoon at the North Fulton Annex, a continuous line of about six or seven people waited to approach poll workers. After presenting ID, the voter receives a printed page to confirm their name and address, and to indicate their political party affiliation.  They are then given a ballot card corresponding with the party.

At the poll

Poll booths at the North Fulton Annex, on Roswell Road, had open wings allowing a person to easily glance at the voter ballot in the next station.
