Fulton County: Error in Reported Number of Early Voters Was One-Day Occurrence

Wednesday numbers for advanced voter turnout in Sandy Springs and Fulton were lower that originally reported by the County.


Fulton County incorrectly doubled the number of Wednesday's early voters in a daily report on the turnout. The number of voters at the six Fulton locations on Wednesday was 8,663, not 16,966, which was reported to the media.

Sandy Springs numbers incorrectly showed 2,641 at the North Fulton Service Center, but 1,329 actually came according to the corrected update.

Alicia Phillips, Public Affairs Officer, said it was a one-day occurrence and not a systemic problem.

Early voter turnout has increased steadily since polls opened on Oct. 15. Fulton County reports that 63,593 voters have cast ballots so far. A total of 8,485 voted Thursday in Fulton County, including 1,391 at the North Fulton Service Center on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.
