Board of Elections

On March 25, 2021, Governor Kemp signed SB 202, also referred to as The Omnibus Elections Bill, into law.
The Board of Elections appreciates your patience as we work through this new legislation in the coming weeks to interpret and implement it along with the Board of Registrars.
We will also be putting out a guide for Chatham County voters to know what will be changing.

To read about the bill, follow this link:

The Board of Elections of Chatham County functions as the superintendent of elections and conducts primaries and elections in accordance with State law. The Board performs all services and functions necessary to support the election process. The Board establishes boundaries for voting precincts, secures facilities to serve as polling locations for these precincts, recruits, selects, hires, trains and assigns personnel to serve as poll officials. The board also conducts qualification for candidates, develops ballots for elections, acquires, maintains, prepares and delivers equipment used to conduct elections, publicizes notices as required by law and maintains elections records.
