  • How to make advance voting even faster, from Elections Supevisor Willie Green III: “A recent study indicated that Georgia had one of the highest rates of wait time for voting in the nation. So, to improve our contribution to reducing this statistic, I have placed the in-person application online to be printed anytime and brought into the early-voting poll locations. I hope this administrative policy change will reduce wait times in Floyd County…   A voter will be required to fill out an application for casting an in-person absentee ballot located here.”  In-person Application For Official Absentee Ballot.
