Elections and Registration:

The Board of Elections & Registration consists of five appointed members. One member is appointed by the Chief Judge of the Superior Court, two members are appointed by the Republican Party, and two members are appointed by the Democratic Party all for four year terms. An Elections Supervisor, recommended by the County Manager and appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, oversee the day-to-day operations of the department. This office is responsible for conducting county elections, registration of voters, maintaining the list of registered voters, issuing absentee ballots, disseminating information to the public, and keeping abreast of all state laws pertaining to elections and voter registration. In addition, this office also conducts city elections for Auburn, Bethlehem, Carl, and Winder on a contractual basis whereby each city pays for the cost of their city elections. For FY2017, three elections are scheduled to occur; the November General Election, a possible December State run-off and a possible January election for Federal runoff. There will also be a special election in conjunction with the November General for Commission District 5 and a county-wide SPLOST.

Our office is located on the ground floor (former tag office). The ONLY entrance is on the left side of building, ground floor. ALL other entrances are secured by the Sheriff’s Office and you will be unable to enter the building from any other point.
